Rab7a, a small GTPase of the Rab family, is localized to late endosomes and controls late endocytic trafficking. The discovery of several Rab7a interacting proteins revealed that Rab7a function is closely connected to cytoskeletal elements. Indeed, Rab7a recruits on vesicles RILP and FYCO that are responsible for the movement of Rab7a-positive vesicles(More)
Rab-interacting lysosomal protein (RILP) is a regulator of late stages of endocytosis. Recent work proved that depletion of RILP promotes migration of breast cancer cells in wound healing assay, whereas its overexpression influences re-arrangements of actin cytoskeleton. Here, we further characterized the role of RILP in cell migration by analyzing several(More)
