Mouse anti RAB5A antibody recognizes ras-related protein Rab-5A, also known as RAB5.

RAB5A is a member of the Rab family of small GTPases and acts as an important rate-limiting component for regulation of endocytosis and early endosome fusion, and also plays a role in autophagy (Xu et al. 2018). Accordingly, RAB5A regulates transport between the plasma membrane and early endosomes (Bucci et al. 1994). However, RAB5A plays diverse biological roles. In oocytes during meiosis, the protein is required for control of spindle length and kinetochore-microtubule attachment (Ma et al. 2014). RAB5A is also involved with regulation of T cell motility, important for the adaptive immune response (Ong et al. 2014). Rab proteins play a role in the regulation of cancer progression, and RAB5A is overexpressed in several human cancers (Zhang et al. 2017). More specifically, aberrant RAB5A expression contributes to increased distant metastasis. For example, RAB5A is involved with metastatic potential of lung and gastric cancer (Yu et al. 2015).
