gene: rab-5 [Browse genome (BioProject PRJNA13758)] [Search on AGR]
Enables GTPase activating protein binding activity and GTPase activity. Involved in embryo development; protein localization; and vesicle-mediated transport. Located in cell cortex; cytoplasmic vesicle; and periciliary membrane compartment. Expressed in several structures, including ventral cord neurons. Is an ortholog of human RAB5B (RAB5B, member RAS oncogene family) and RAB5C (RAB5C, member RAS oncogene family).
