  • FunctionThe BBSome complex is required for ciliogenesis but is dispensable for centriolar satellite function. This ciliogenic function is mediated in part by the Rab8 GDP/GTP exchange factor, which localizes to the basal body and contacts the BBSome. Rab8(GTP) enters the primary cilium and promotes extension of the ciliary membrane. Firstly the BBSome associates with the ciliary membrane and binds to RAB3IP/Rabin8, the guanosyl exchange factor (GEF) for Rab8 and then the Rab8-GTP localizes to the cilium and promotes docking and fusion of carrier vesicles to the base of the ciliary membrane.
  • Tissue specificityWidely expressed. Expressed in adult heart, skeletal muscle, lung, liver, kidney, placenta and brain, and in fetal kidney, lung, liver and brain.
  • Involvement in diseaseA chromosomal aberration involving PTHB1 is found in Wilms tumor 5 (WT5) [MIM:601583]. Translocation t(1;7)(q42;p15) with OBSCN.
    Defects in BBS9 are a cause of Bardet-Biedl syndrome type 9 (BBS9) [MIM:209900]. Bardet-Biedl syndrome (BBS) is a genetically heterogeneous, autosomal recessive disorder characterized by usually severe pigmentary retinopathy, early onset obesity, polydactyly, hypogenitalism, renal malformation and mental retardation.
  • Cellular localizationCytoplasm > cytoskeleton > centrosome. Cell projection > cilium membrane. Cytoplasm. Localizes to nonmembranous centriolar satellites in the cytoplasm.
