Ras-related protein Rab-8A - P61006 (RAB8A_HUMAN)


Protein Feature View of PDB entries mapped to a UniProtKB sequence  

The small GTPases Rab are key regulators of intracellular membrane trafficking, from the formation of transport vesicles to their fusion with membranes. Rabs cycle between an inactive GDP-bound form and an active GTP-bound form that is able to recruit to membranes different sets of downstream effectors directly responsible for vesicle formation, movement, tethering and fusion. That Rab is involved in polarized vesicular trafficking and neurotransmitter release. Together with RAB11A, RAB3IP, the exocyst complex, PARD3, PRKCI, ANXA2, CDC42 and DNMBP promotes transcytosis of PODXL to the apical membrane initiation sites (AMIS), apical surface formation and lumenogenesis (PubMed:20890297). Together with MYO5B and RAB11A participates in epithelial cell polarization (PubMed:21282656). May be involved in ciliogenesis (PubMed:21844891, PubMed:30398148). Together with MICALL2, may also regulate adherens junction assembly (By similarity). May play a role in insulin-induced transport to the plasma membrane of the glucose transporter GLUT4 and therefore play a role in glucose homeostasis (By similarity). Involved in autophagy (PubMed:27103069). UniProt

Subunit Structure
Interacts (GTP-bound form) with MICALL1; regulates RAB8A association with recycling endosomes (By similarity). Interacts with MICALL2; competes with RAB13 and is involved in E-cadherin endocytic recycling (By similarity). Interacts (GTP-bound form) with MICAL1, MICALCL, MICAL3, EHBP1 and EHBP1L1; at least in case of MICAL1, MICALCL, MICAL3 and EHBP1L1 two molecules of RAB8A can bind to one molecule of the effector protein; ternary complexes of RAB8A, RAB13 and either MICAL1 or EHBP1L1 are possible (PubMed:27552051). Interacts with EHD1 (PubMed:19864458). Interacts with MAP4K2 and SYTL4 (By similarity). Interacts with SGSM1 and SGSM3 (By similarity). Interacts with RABIF, RIMS2, RPH3A and RPH3A (By similarity). Interacts with OPTN (PubMed:15837803). Interacts with RAB3IP (PubMed:12221131). Interacts with MYO5B (PubMed:21282656). Interacts with PIFO (PubMed:20643351). Interacts with BIRC6/bruce (PubMed:18329369). Interacts with OCRL (PubMed:22543976, PubMed:21378754). Interacts with AHI1 (By similarity). Interacts with DCDC1 (PubMed:22159412). Interacts with LRRK2; interaction facilitates phosphorylation of Thr-72 (PubMed:26824392). Interacts with RAB31P, GDI1, GDI2, CHM, CHML, RABGGTA, RABGGTB, TBC1D15 and INPP5B; these interactions are dependent on Thr-72 not being phosphorylated (PubMed:26824392, PubMed:29125462). Interacts with RILPL1 and RILPL2; these interactions are dependent on the phosphorylation of Thr-72 by LRRK2 (PubMed:29125462, PubMed:30398148). UniProt

Data origin/color codes
The vertical color bar on the left side indicates data provenance.
Data in green originates from UniProtKB  
Variation data (sourced from UniProt) shows non-genetic variation from the ExPASy   and dbSNP   websites.
Data in yellow originates from Pfam  , by interacting with the HMMER3 web site  
Data in purple originates from Phosphosite  .
Data in orange originates from the SCOP   (version 1.75) and SCOPe   (version 2.04) classifications.
Data in grey has been calculated using BioJava  . Protein disorder predictions are based on JRONN (Troshin, P. and Barton, G. J. unpublished), a Java implementation of RONN  
  • Red: potentially disorderd region
  • Blue: probably ordered region.
Hydropathy has been calculated using a sliding window of 15 residues and summing up scores from standard hydrophobicity tables.
  • Red: hydrophobic
  • Blue: hydrophilic.
Data in lilac represent the genomic exon structure projected onto the UniProt sequence.
Data in blue originates from PDB
  • Secstruc: Secondary structure projected from representative PDB entries onto the UniProt sequence.
Sequence Mismatches It is now possible to see information about expression tags, cloning artifacts, and many other details related to sequence mismatches.
Icons represent a number of different sequence modifications that can be observed in PDB files. For example the 'T' icon T represents expression tags that have been added to the sequence. The 'E' icon E represents an engineered mutation. However, besides these two, there are many other icons. For more information about the meaning and exact position of a sequence modification, move the cursor over the icon.
