RAB18

A gene on chromosome 10p12.1 that encodes a member of the Rab subfamily of Ras-related small GTPases, which regulates membrane trafficking in organelles and transport vesicles, and plays a role in apical endocytosis and recycling.

In the transgenic Arabidopsis, overexpression of AtHD2C was associated with enhanced expression of RD29B and RAB18 (ABA-responsive LEA-like genes) which resulted in tolerance of the transgenic plant to salt stress (Sridha and Wu 2006).
