RAB5A

RAB5A

A gene on chromosome 3p24-p22 that encodes a member of the Rab subfamily of Ras-related small GTPases, which is required for fusion of plasma membranes and early endosomes and helps regulate filopodia extension.

The docking of MVB with the PM is mediated by several components of the RAB family of small GTPase proteins (RAB2B, RAB5A, RAB7, RAB9A, RAB11, RAB27A, RAB27B, RAB35 [37], and RLP-1 [38]).
It was demonstrated that the mRNAs present in EVs are associated with the mesenchymal phenotype and with several cell functions related to the control of cell differentiation (RAX2, OR11H12, OR2M3, DDN, and GRIN3A), transcription (CLOCK, IRF6, RAX2, TCFP2, and BCL6B), proliferation (SENP2, RBL1, CDC14B, and S100A13), cytoskeleton (DDN, MSN, and CTNNA1), metabolism (ADAM15, FUT3, ADM2, LTA4H, BDH2, and RAB5A) [47], and cell immune regulation (CRLF1, IL1RN, and MT1X) (Table 2).
The phase of vesicle initiation was suppressed by miR-30a/b, miR-376b, miR-17-5p, and miR-216a [129-132] inhibiting BECLIN1 expression; by miR-152 [133] that targets ATG14; by miR-101 [134] downregulating RAB5A; and by miR-24-3p, miR-376b, miR-101, and miR-34a [130, 134-136] that modulates ATG4.
12 proteins were identified, associated with this cell process, which were SEC22B (Sec22), TUBB (TUBB), ITGA5 ([alpha]5[beta]1), ACTB (F-actin), ITGB2 (CR3), ITGB1 ([beta]1), TUBA1B (TUBA), ATB6V1B2 (vATPase), SEC22B (Sec22), CANX (calnexin), RAB5A (Rab5), and FCAR (FcaR) (Figure 6).
