Summary
RAB family members are small, RAS-related GTP-binding proteins that are important regulators of vesicular transport. Each RAB protein targets multiple proteins that act in exocytic / endocytic pathways. This gene encodes a RAB family member that regulates vesicle traffic in the late endosomes and also from late endosomes to lysosomes. This encoded protein is also involved in the cellular vacuolation of the VacA cytotoxin of Helicobacter pylori. Mutations at highly conserved amino acid residues in this gene have caused some forms of Charcot-Marie-Tooth (CMT) type 2 neuropathies. [provided by RefSeq, Jul 2008]

Envelope surface glycoprotein gp160, precursor env HIV-1 gp160 interacts with RAB7A; predicted interaction to be relevant to vesicular transport/membrane trafficking PubMed
env Depletion of Rab7A leads to the accumulation of HIV-1 gp160 in cells, which results in reduced production of HIV-1 particles and infectivity PubMed
Nef nef Genome-wide shRNA screening identifies RAB7, which is required for HIV-1 Nef-induced downregulation of CD4 in HeLa CD4+ cells PubMed
nef Nef-triggered MHCII endocytosis requires Rab5 activity and lyst function, whereas lysosomal trafficking of internalized MHCII molecules requires Rab7 activity PubMed

RefSeqs maintained independently of Annotated Genomes

These reference sequences exist independently of genome builds. Explain

These reference sequences are curated independently of the genome annotation cycle, so their versions may not match the RefSeq versions in the current genome build. Identify version mismatches by comparing the version of the RefSeq in this section to the one reported in Genomic regions, transcripts, and products above.
