Coordination between RAB GTPase and phosphoinositide regulation and functions.
Summary of "Coordination between RAB GTPase and phosphoinositide regulation and functions."
Membrane trafficking relies on dynamic changes in membrane identities that are determined by the regulation of distinct RAB GTPases and phosphoinositides. RABs and phosphoinositides both act to spatiotemporally recruit effectors of membrane remodelling, including sequential RAB and phosphoinositide activities. New ideas on coordinated regulation of specific RABs and phosphoinositides, achieved by direct physical and functional interactions between their regulatory enzymes, are emerging as a central mechanism to ensure precision and fidelity of membrane trafficking.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions
A protein found most abundantly in the nervous system. Defects or deficiencies in this protein are associated with NEUROFIBROMATOSIS 1, Watson syndrome, and LEOPARD syndrome. Mutations in the gene (GENE, NEUROFIBROMATOSIS 1) affect two known functions: regulation of ras-GTPase and tumor suppression.
A plasma membrane exchange glycoprotein transporter that functions in intracellular pH regulation, cell volume regulation, and cellular response to many different hormones and mitogens.
Proteins that activate the GTPase of specific GTP-BINDING PROTEINS.
P120 Gtpase Activating Protein
A 120-kDa RAS GTPase-activating protein that binds to tyrosine phosphoproteins through its SH2 domains. The 100-kDa RNA-splicing variant (p100 GAP protein) is expressed in placenta.
Neutral or negatively charged ligands bonded to metal cations or neutral atoms. The number of ligand atoms to which the metal center is directly bonded is the metal cation's coordination number, and this number is always greater than the regular valence or oxidation number of the metal. A coordination complex can be negative, neutral, or positively charged.
