RAB, member of RAS oncogene family-like 2B
The RABL2B protein is a member of the RAB gene family which belongs to the RAS GTPase superfamily. RABL2B is located within a subtelomeric region of 22q13.3. Multiple alternatively spliced transcript variants encoding several different isoforms have been found for this gene. [provided by RefSeq, Aug 2008] (from
Here we demonstrate that five human transcription units (WT1, NOD2, GNAS, RABL2A, RABL2B) have constant splice-isoform ratios in genetically diverse lymphoblastoid cell lines independent of the type of alternative splicing (exon skipping, alternative donor/acceptor, tandem splice sites) and gene expression level.

Among the three genes in the minimal critical region (from the centromere to the telomere: SHANK3, ACR and RABL2B), the defect in the SHANK3 gene is considered to be the cause of the neurobehavioral symptoms.
