Protein Information
Name RAB21
Synonyms KIAA0118
Function Regulates integrin internalization and recycling, but does not influence the traffic of endosomally translocated receptors in general. As a result, may regulate cell adhesion and migration (By similarity). During the mitosis of adherent cells, controls the endosomal trafficking of integrins which is required for the successful completion of cytokinesis. Involved in neurite growth (By similarity).
Cellular Location Endoplasmic reticulum membrane; Lipid-anchor. Golgi apparatus, trans-Golgi network Golgi apparatus membrane. Early endosome membrane. Cytoplasmic vesicle membrane. Cleavage furrow. Note=Colocalizes with ANKRD27 and VAMP7 in neurites (By similarity). In nonpolarized epithelial Caco-2 cells, found in the endoplasmic reticulum; in polarized cells, observed in vesicles in the apical cytoplasm (PubMed:10887961). During mitosis, in mid-telophase, localized in the ingressing cleavage furrow (PubMed:18804435). In late telophase, detected at the opposite poles of the daughter cells, in vesicles at the base of lamellipodia formed by the separating daughter cells (PubMed:18804435). {ECO:0000250|UniProtKB:P35282, ECO:0000269|PubMed:10887961, ECO:0000269|PubMed:18804435}
Tissue Location Widely expressed. In jejunal tissue, predominantly expressed in the apical region of the epithelial cell layer of the villi, weak expression, if any, in the crypt epithelium. Capillary endothelium and some cell types in the lamina propria also show expression

RAB21 Antibody: RAB21 is a member of a subfamily of small GTP-binding protein genes of the Ras superfamily that plays an important role in intracellular vesicular targeting. In non-polarized Caco-2 cells, RAB21 showed a general endoplasmic reticulum (ER)-like localization, while in polarized cells, RAB21 localized to apical vesicles. RAB21 has been shown to associate with integrin subunits and to be important for receptor entry into cells via RAB5/RAB21 endosomes. The GTPase-activating protein p120RasGAP regulates cell motility by controlling the return of the endocytosed integrins to the plasma membrane by competing with RAB21 for binding to overlapping sites on the α-tail of endocytosed integrin.
