High impact information on RAB41

  • In this study, we expressed a number of different Rab proteins, from Rab1 to Rab41 in PC12 cells and systematically screened them for those that are specifically localized on dense-core vesicles [1].
  • The results of PCR amplification indicated that human RAB41 is widely expressed in brain, testis, lung, heart, ovary, colon, kidney, uterus and spleen but not in liver [2].
  • RAB41 was composed of three exons, and it was mapped to chromosome 3q21.3 by comparing with the human genomic data [2].
  • The open reading frame of RAB41 is 636bp in length [2].
  • By genomic searching, an intronless pseudogene homologous to RAB41 at chromosome 16--RAB41P was identified at human chromosome 16q11 [2].

Anatomical context of RAB41

  • Through data mining, a novel human RAB41 gene was predicted and subsequently isolated from human testis [2].
