Gene: RAB21 (RAB21, member RAS oncogene family) Homo sapiens
Symbol: RAB21
Name: RAB21, member RAS oncogene family
Description: Exhibits GDP binding activity; GTP binding activity; and GTPase activity. Involved in anterograde axonal transport and regulation of vesicle-mediated transport. Localizes to several cellular components, including the Golgi subcompartment; cytoplasmic side of early endosome membrane; and cytoplasmic side of plasma membrane.
Type: protein-coding
RefSeq Status: REVIEWED
Also known as: GTP-binding protein RAB21; KIAA0118; ras-related protein Rab-21
