Gene Information

This gene encodes a member of the exophilin subfamily of Rab effector proteins. The protein forms a ternary complex with the small Ras-related GTPase Rab27A in its GTP-bound form and the motor protein myosin Va. A similar protein complex in mouse functions to tether pigment-producing organelles called melanosomes to the actin cytoskeleton in melanocytes and is required for visible pigmentation in the hair and skin. A mutation in this gene results in Griscelli syndrome type 3 which is characterized by a silver-gray hair color and abnormal pigment distribution in the hair shaft. Several alternatively spliced transcript variants of this gene have been described but the full-length nature of some of these variants has not been determined. [provided by RefSeq Jul 2008]
