    ..Rab14 mutant haemocytes show impaired recruitment of Rab7 and of a lysosomal marker onto S.?aureus phagosomes. The defect in phagocytosis is associated with higher bacterial load and increased susceptibility to S.?aureus in the animal. ..

    ..These findings have important implications for our understanding of the complex role HTT plays within neurons normally, which when disrupted may lead to neuronal death and disease. ..

    ..Thus, in metazoans, Rab1 activation requires TRAPP subunits not found in yeast, and Rab11 activation is shared by TRAPPII and an unrelated GEF that is metazoan specific. ..
