    The small GTPase Rab5 is the key regulator of early endosomal fusion. It is post-translationally modified by covalent attachment of two geranylgeranyl (GG) chains to adjacent cysteine residues of the C-terminal hypervariable region (HVR)...

    ..The data presented here support the hypothesis that retromer performs a selective function in endosome-to-Golgi transport, mediating retrieval of the CI-MPR, but not furin. ..

    ..A similar binding was seen to rab1 but not to rab6, both Golgi rabs. In contrast, rab5 was as expected, shown to bind rabaptin-5 and rabex-5 as well as the endosomal effector protein EEA1 but not GM130...

    ..Thus these results indicate that ClC-5 is present in the small intestine and colon of rats and suggest that it plays a role in the endocytotic pathways of intestinal cells...
