gene: rab-7 [Browse genome (BioProject PRJNA13758)] [Search on AGR]
Enables GTPase activity. Involved in several processes, including oocyte growth; positive regulation of early endosome to late endosome transport; and vesicle-mediated transport. Located in late endosome membrane; lysosome; and phagocytic vesicle membrane. Expressed in several structures, including oocyte. Used to study obesity. Human ortholog(s) of this gene implicated in Charcot-Marie-Tooth disease type 2B. Is an ortholog of human RAB7A (RAB7A, member RAS oncogene family).
