Gene: RAB8B (RAB8B, member RAS oncogene family) Homo sapiens
Symbol: RAB8B
Name: RAB8B, member RAS oncogene family
Description: RAB proteins, like RAB8B, are low molecular mass monomeric GTPases that localize on the cytoplasmic surfaces of distinct membrane-bound organelles. RAB proteins function in intracellular vesicle transport by aiding in the docking and/or fusion of vesicles with their target membranes (summary by Chen et al., 1997 [PubMed 9030196]).[supplied by OMIM, Nov 2010]
Type: protein-coding
RefSeq Status: VALIDATED
Also known as: FLJ38125; RAB-8b protein; ras-related protein Rab-8B
