Gene: CHM (CHM Rab escort protein) Homo sapiens
Symbol: CHM
Name: CHM Rab escort protein
Description: Exhibits Rab GTPase binding activity. Involved in protein geranylgeranylation and protein targeting to membrane. Localizes to the Rab-protein geranylgeranyltransferase complex and cytosol. Implicated in choroideremia.
Type: protein-coding
RefSeq Status: REVIEWED
