A little guide for advanced search:

  • Tip 1. You can use quotes "" to search for an exact expression.
    Example: "cell division"
  • Tip 2. You can use + symbol to restrict results containing all words.
    Example: +cell +stem
  • Tip 3. You can use + and - symbols to force inclusion or exclusion of specific words.
    Example: +cell -stem
e.g. searching for members in projects tagged cancer

Members of the Rab subfamily of small GTPases play an important role in the regulation of intracellular transport routes. Rab6A has been shown to be a regulator of membrane traffic from the Golgi apparatus towards the endoplasmic reticulum (ER). Here, we report on the identification of a Rab6 isoform, termed Rab6B. The corresponding full-length cDNA was isolated from a Caco-2 cell library. The deduced amino acid sequence showed 91% identity with the Rab6A protein and revealed that sequence divergence is dispersed over a large region of the COOH-terminal domain. Rab6B is encoded by an independent gene which is located on chromosome 3 region q21-q23. In contrast to Rab6A whose expression is ubiquitous, northern blot analysis, immunohistochemistry, and immunofluorescence demonstrated that Rab6B is expressed in a tissue and cell-type specific manner. Rab6B is predominantly expressed in brain and the neuroblastoma cell line SK-N-SH. In brain, Rab6B was found to be specifically expressed in microglia, pericytes and Purkinje cells. Endogenous Rab6B localises to the Golgi apparatus and to ERGIC-53-positive vesicles. Comparable studies between Rab6A and Rab6B revealed distinct biochemical and cellular properties. Rab6B displayed lower GTP-binding activities and in overexpression studies, the protein is distributed over Golgi and ER membranes, whereas Rab6A is more restricted to the Golgi apparatus. Since the GTP-bound form of Rab6B (Rab6B Q72L) does interact with all known Rab6A effectors, including Rabkinesin-6, the results suggest a cell-type specific role for Rab6B in retrograde membrane traffic at the level of the Golgi complex.
