Predicted to have GTPase activity. Involved in several processes, including embryonic digit morphogenesis; neural tube development; and regulation of smoothened signaling pathway. Localizes to endosome membrane and plasma membrane. Is expressed in several structures, including central nervous system; embryo mesenchyme; ovary; palatal shelf; and retina. Human ortholog(s) of this gene implicated in Carpenter syndrome. Orthologous to human RAB23 (RAB23, member RAS oncogene family).
