    bMERB domains are bivalent Rab8 family effectors evolved by gene duplication

    Amrita Rai, Anastasia Oprisko ... Matthias P Müller
    A human three-helix Rab-binding domain can potentially bind to two Rab proteins simultaneously with different affinities at binding sites generated by gene duplication.

    Genome-wide screen reveals Rab12 GTPase as a critical activator of Parkinson’s disease-linked LRRK2 kinase

    Herschel S Dhekne, Francesca Tonelli ... Suzanne R Pfeffer
    Activating mutations in the leucine-rich repeat kinase 2 cause Parkinson’s disease, and an unbiased genome-wide screen revealed an unexpected, specific role for Rab12 in activating this kinase directly for Rab GTPase phosphorylation.

    Rab12 is a regulator of LRRK2 and its activation by damaged lysosomes

    Xiang Wang, Vitaliy V Bondar ... Anastasia G Henry
    Rab12 was identified as a key modulator of LRRK2-dependent Rab phosphorylation that mediates the recruitment of LRRK2 to lysosomes in response to damage.

    CRB3 navigates Rab11 trafficking vesicles to promote γTuRC assembly during ciliogenesis

    Bo Wang, Zheyong Liang ... Peijun Liu
    The apical polarity protein CRB3 is crucial for regulating vesicle trafficking in γ-tubulin ring complex assembly during ciliogenesis and cilium-related Hedgehog and Wnt signaling pathways in tumorigenesis.

    In vivo identification of GTPase interactors by mitochondrial relocalization and proximity biotinylation

    Alison K Gillingham, Jessie Bertram ... Sean Munro
    Relocation of Rab, Ras and Rho family GTPases to the surface of mitochondria enables efficient identification of their effectors, exchange factors and GAPs by proximity biotinylation.

    Rab10 regulates the sorting of internalised TrkB for retrograde axonal transport

    Oscar Marcelo Lazo, Giampietro Schiavo
    BDNF-regulated deployment of Rab10 to the distal axon regulates retrograde propagation of neurotrophic signalling, providing a flexible mechanism to fine-tune the communication between the synapse and the cell body of neurons, as well as novel therapeutic targets for neurodegeneration.

    Phosphoproteomics reveals that Parkinson's disease kinase LRRK2 regulates a subset of Rab GTPases

    Martin Steger, Francesca Tonelli ... Matthias Mann
    Discovery of a physiological LRRK2 substrate and a new mechanism of Rab regulation should aid Parkinson’s research and the understanding of Rab function.

    Genetic screen in Drosophila muscle identifies autophagy-mediated T-tubule remodeling and a Rab2 role in autophagy

    Naonobu Fujita, Wilson Huang ... Amy A Kiger
    Analyses of a developmentally regulated Drosophila myofiber remodeling program provide insight into induced autophagy required for T-tubule membrane reorganization, and uncover a conserved Rab2 role in autophagosome-lysosome fusion.
