Gene RIF (9)

26631737 Rab38 was associated with albuminuria in type 2 diabetes patients. Relative expression of RAB38 was higher in tubuli of patients with diabetic kidney disease compared with control subjects.
25324551 Rab38 and its close homolog Rab32 bind to Myosin Vc but not to Myosin Va or Myosin Vb. Binding depends on residues in the switch II region of Rab32 and Rab38 and regions of the Myosin Vc coiled-coil tail domain.
24875359 MiR-124 significantly decreases the H2O2-induced apoptosis of human hepatic L02 cells by targeting the Rab38 gene and activating the AKT pathway.
24026199 The expression levels of RAB38 were significantly associated with grade progression as well as prognosis in gliomas. RAB38 is an important prognostic biomarker and potential therapeutic target in gliomas.
23084991 BLOC-3 is a Rab32 and Rab38 guanine nucleotide exchange factor, with a specific function in the biogenesis of lysosome-related organelles.
22511774 that Rab38 and Rab32 are the specific factors that direct the ubiquitous machinery to mediate transport from early endosomes to maturing LROs.
20103624 Studies confirmed elevated expression of three target antigens RAB38, TBCE, and DUSP12 in CML.
18477474 Varp physically interacts with Rab38, and preferentially binds to the active GTP-bound form of Rab38 both in vitro and in vivo.
12850305 Not a new major locus for Japanese oculocutaneous albinisms.
