Human Gene RILPL2 (uc001uey.1) Description and Page Index
Description: Homo sapiens Rab interacting lysosomal protein-like 2 (RILPL2), mRNA. RefSeq Summary (NM_145058): This gene encodes a protein that contains a rab-interacting lysosomal protein-like domain. This protein may be involved in regulating lysosome morphology. This protein may also be a target for the Hepatitis C virus and assist in viral replication. Alternate splicing results in multiple transcript variants. [provided by RefSeq, Jan 2015]. Transcript (Including UTRs) Position: hg19 chr12:123,899,936-123,921,264 Size: 21,329 Total Exon Count: 4 Strand: - Coding Region Position: hg19 chr12:123,900,438-123,920,967 Size: 20,530 Coding Exon Count: 4
ID:RIPL2_HUMAN DESCRIPTION: RecName: Full=RILP-like protein 2; AltName: Full=Rab-interacting lysosomal protein-like 2; AltName: Full=p40phox-binding protein; FUNCTION: Involved in cell shape and neuronal morphogenesis, positively regulating the establishment and maintenance of dendritic spines. May activate RAC1 (By similarity). SUBUNIT: Interacts (via N-terminus) with MYO5A, the interaction is required for its role in dendrite formation. Interacts with RAC1 (By similarity). INTERACTION: Self; NbExp=2; IntAct=EBI-717552, EBI-717552; SUBCELLULAR LOCATION: Cytoplasm, cytosol. TISSUE SPECIFICITY: Widely expressed. Expressed at higher level in lung. SIMILARITY: Belongs to the RILPL family. SIMILARITY: Contains 1 RILP-like domain.
The RNAfold program from the Vienna RNA Package is used to perform the secondary structure predictions and folding calculations. The estimated folding energy is in kcal/mol. The more negative the energy, the more secondary structure the RNA is likely to have.

ModBase Predicted Comparative 3D Structure on Q969X0
The pictures above may be empty if there is no ModBase structure for the protein. The ModBase structure frequently covers just a fragment of the protein. You may be asked to log onto ModBase the first time you click on the pictures. It is simplest after logging in to just click on the picture again to get to the specific info on that model.
Orthologous Genes in Other Species
Orthologies between human, mouse, and rat are computed by taking the best BLASTP hit, and filtering out non-syntenic hits. For more distant species reciprocal-best BLASTP hits are used. Note that the absence of an ortholog in the table below may reflect incomplete annotations in the other species rather than a true absence of the orthologous gene.
