Automated description from the Alliance of Genome Resources
Predicted to have GDP binding activity and GTPase activity. Involved in several processes, including immunoglobulin transcytosis in epithelial cells mediated by polymeric immunoglobulin receptor; melanosome transport; and regulation of plasma membrane bounded cell projection organization. Localizes to several cellular components, including the apical plasma membrane; basolateral plasma membrane; and cytoplasmic vesicle. Orthologous to human RAB17 (RAB17, member RAS oncogene family).
