Rab7, a small GTPase of the Rab family, plays multiple roles including vesicular transport, endocytic trafficking, and autophagy. Rab7 is associated with both the endosome and lysosome, and it facilitates endosomal maturation, transport from the late endosome to the lysosome, and positioning of the endosome and lysosome via regulating their movement along cytoskeleton. Consistently, mutations or dysfunctions of Rab7 result in traffic disorders, which cause various diseases, such as neuropathy, cancer and lipid metabolism disease. Rab7 also plays important roles in microbial pathogen infection and survival, as well as in participating in the life cycle of viruses.Product Details
