The protein encoded by this gene is thought to be an effector for RAB3A, which is a small G protein that acts in the late stages of neurotransmitter exocytosis. The encoded protein may be involved in neurotransmitter release and synaptic vesicle traffic. [provided by RefSeq, Dec 2016]

UniProtKB/Swiss-Prot for RPH3A Gene
Protein transport. Probably involved with Ras-related protein Rab-3A in synaptic vesicle traffic and/or synaptic vesicle fusion. Could play a role in neurotransmitter release by regulating membrane flow in the nerve terminal (By similarity).
