  • Function
    Rab GTPase key regulator in vesicle trafficking. Essential for maintaining the integrity of the endosome-trans-Golgi network structure. Together with LRRK2, plays a role in the retrograde trafficking pathway for recycling proteins, such as mannose 6 phosphate receptor (M6PR), between lysosomes and the Golgi apparatus in a retromer-dependent manner. Regulates neuronal process morphology in the intact central nervous system (CNS). May play a role in the formation of typhoid toxin transport intermediates during Salmonella enterica serovar Typhi (S.Typhi) epithelial cell infection.
  • Tissue specificity
  • Sequence similarities
    Belongs to the small GTPase superfamily. Rab family.
  • Post-translational
    In case of Salmonella enterica serovar Typhimurium (S.Typhimurium) infection, is proteolytically cleaved between Gly-41 and Val-42 by the GtgE viral protease encoded on the Gifsy-2 lysogen bacteriophage, which therefore prevents the recruitment of RAB29 to S.Typhimurium-containing vacuoles. In contrast, no proteolytically cleavage is detected in S.Typhi-infected cells (PubMed:22042847).
  • Cellular localization
    Cell membrane. Cytoplasm. Cytoplasm, perinuclear region. Golgi apparatus. Golgi apparatus, trans-Golgi network. Vacuole. Cytoplasm, cytoskeleton. Colocalizes with LRRK2 along tubular structures emerging from Golgi apparatus (By similarity). Colocalizes with GM130 at the Golgi apparatus. Colocalizes with dynamic tubules emerging from and retracting to the Golgi apparatus. Colocalizes with TGN46 at the trans-Golgi network (TGN). In Salmonella enterica serovar Typhi (S.Typhi) infected epithelial cells, is recruited and colocalized with both S.Typhi-containing vacuoles and dynamic tubules as well as those emerging from the vacuole toward the cell periphery.

  • ICC/IF image of ab56443 stained A549 cells. The cells were 4% formaldehyde fixed (10 min) and then incubated in 1%BSA / 10% normal goat serum / 0.3M glycine in 0.1% PBS-Tween for 1h to permeabilise the cells and block non-specific protein-protein interactions. The cells were then incubated with the antibody ab56443 at 10µg/ml overnight at +4°C. The secondary antibody (pseudo-colored green) was Alexa Fluor® 488 goat anti- mouse (ab150117) IgG (H+L) preadsorbed, used at a 1/1000 dilution for 1h. Alexa Fluor® 594 WGA was used to label plasma membranes (pseudo-colored red) at a 1/200 dilution for 1h at room temperature. DAPI was used to stain the cell nuclei (pseudo-colored blue) at a concentration of 1.43µM for 1hour at room temperature.

The cells were then incubated in 1x PBS / 10% normal goat serum / 0.3M glycine to block non-specific protein-protein interactions followed by the antibody (ab56443, 0.1μg/1x106 cells) for 30 min at 22°C. The secondary antibody used was Alexa Fluor® 488 goat anti-mouse IgG (H&L) (ab150113) at 1/2000 dilution for 30 min at 22°C. Isotype control antibody (black line) was mouse IgG2b [PLPV219] (ab91366, 1μg/1x106 cells) used under the same conditions. Unlabelled sample (blue line) was also used as a control. Acquisition of >5,000 events were collected using a 20mW Argon ion laser (488nm) and 525/30 bandpass filter.
