Official Full Name
RAB7A, member RAS oncogene family
RAB family members are small, RAS-related GTP-binding proteins that are important regulators of vesicular transport.;Each RAB protein targets multiple proteins that act in exocytic / endocytic pathways. This gene encodes a RAB family;member that regulates vesicle traffic in the late endosomes and also from late endosomes to lysosomes. This encoded;protein is also involved in the cellular vacuolation of the VacA cytotoxin of Helicobacter pylori. Mutations at highly;conserved amino acid residues in this gene have caused some forms of Charcot-Marie-Tooth (CMT) type 2 neuropathies.
