High impact information on RAB10

  • Double-labeling experiments with anti-rab10 antisera and wheat germ agglutinin, a trans-Golgi and trans-Golgi network (TGN) marker, demonstrate that rab10p is not localized to the trans-Golgi/TGN [1].
  • Rab10p is not exclusively localized to the endoplasmic reticulum, as identified by anti-calsequestrin immunofluorescence [1].
  • In mammalian cell lines, Rab10 has been localized to the trans-Golgi/trans-Golgi network (Y.-T. Chen et al., 1993, Proc. Natl. Acad. Sci. USA 90, 6508-6512) [1].
  • Depletion of Rab10 by RNA interference has only mild effects on biosynthetic transport and epithelial polarization, but simultaneous inhibition of Rab10 and Rab8a more strongly impairs basolateral sorting [2].
  • In contrast, neither wild-type nor constitutively active GFP-tagged Rab10 restored GLUT4 translocation [3].

Analytical, diagnostic and therapeutic context of RAB10

  • Immunoblots and immunofluorescent stainings show that rab10 protein (rab10p) is expressed during all stages of sea urchin early development and in all embryonic cell types [1].
