Gene: RAB38 (RAB38, member RAS oncogene family) Homo sapiens
Symbol: RAB38
Name: RAB38, member RAS oncogene family
Description: Exhibits several functions, including AP-1 adaptor complex binding activity; AP-3 adaptor complex binding activity; and BLOC-2 complex binding activity. Involved in several processes, including endosome to melanosome transport; melanosome assembly; and phagosome acidification. Localizes to several cellular components, including cytoplasmic vesicle; lysosome; and mitochondria-associated endoplasmic reticulum membrane; INTERACTS WITH 17beta-estradiol; 2,3,7,8-tetrachlorodibenzodioxine; aflatoxin B1.
Type: protein-coding
RefSeq Status: VALIDATED
Also known as: melanoma antigen NY-MEL-1; NY-MEL-1; Rab-related GTP-binding protein; rab38, member of ras oncogene family; ras-related protein Rab-38; rrGTPbp
