Gene: Rab38 (RAB38, member RAS oncogene family) Rattus norvegicus
Symbol: Rab38
Name: RAB38, member RAS oncogene family
Description: Exhibits GTP binding activity. Involved in platelet dense granule organization and positive regulation of phosphatidylcholine biosynthetic process. Localizes to cytosol and vesicle. Colocalizes with Golgi apparatus and endoplasmic reticulum. Used to study Hermansky-Pudlak syndrome and proteinuria. Orthologous to human RAB38 (RAB38, member RAS oncogene family); INTERACTS WITH 1-[(4-chlorophenyl)-phenylmethyl]-4-methylpiperazine; 2,3,7,8-tetrachlorodibenzodioxine; 2,4-dinitrotoluene.
Type: protein-coding
Also known as: R; R_mapped; Rab38, member of RAS oncogene family; ras-related protein Rab-38; red eyed dilution; Ruby; Ruby or red eyed dilution; ruby or red eyed dilution (mapped); small GTP binding protein
