... tendon reflexes at ankles, weakness in the lower limbs and muscle atrophy, complicated by ulcerations that often lead to amputations. Four missense mutations in the gene encoding the small GTPase Rab7 cause the CMT2B neuropathy. Rab7 is a ubiquitous protein that regulates transport to late endosomes...

... missense mutations in the rab7 gene have been identified as causative of the disease. Rab7 is a small G-protein of the Rab family that controls vesicular transport to late endosomes and lysosomes in the endocytic pathway. The CMT2B-associated mutant Rab7 proteins show altered nucleotide dissociation rates...

... suppressor pathway. Preliminary data suggest that Rab7, a GTPase required for transporter degradation, functions as a tumour suppressor protein, as inhibiting Rab7 activity promotes colony formation in soft agar. These studies indicate that drugs affecting this pathway might have utility as anti-cancer...
