RAB13

A gene on chromosome 1q21.2 that encodes a member of the Rab subfamily of Ras-related small GTPases, which is thought to participate in polarised transport and in the assembly and/or the activity of tight junctions.

It has been widely reported that Rab proteins of the endocytic pathway (e.g., Rab25, Rab13, Rab23, and Rab5) and the constitutive secretory pathway (e.g., Rab8) play significant roles in malignancy [20, 27-30].
