|Function||Rab effector playing a role in late endocytic transport to degradative compartments. Involved in the regulation of lysosomal morphology and distribution. Induces recruitment of dynein-dynactin motor complexes to Rab7A-containing late endosome and lysosome compartments. Promotes centripetal migration of phagosomes and the fusion of phagosomes with the late endosomes and lysosomes.|
|Cellular Location||Endomembrane system. Late endosome membrane. Lysosome membrane. Cytoplasmic vesicle, phagosome membrane Note=Associated with late endosomal, lysosomal and phagosomal membranes. The interaction with RAB7A is necessary for its recruitment to phagosomes|
|Tissue Location||Ubiquitous. Strongly expressed in fetal heart, heart, stomach, spleen, adrenal gland, thyroid gland, salivary gland, fetal liver, liver and lung. Poorly expressed in brain|

RILP Antibody: The Rab interacting lysosomal protein (RILP) is lysosomal protein that interacts with RAB7, a small GTPase that controls transport to endocytic degradative compartments. It is thought that RILP is a downstream effector of RAB7 and both proteins act together in the regulation of late endocytic traffic. Overexpression of RILP caused enlarged lysosomes that are more centrally located in the cell suggesting that RILP may also be involved in the regulation of lysosomal morphology. Other evidence suggests that RILP may play a role in the biogenesis of multivesicular bodies.
