Involved in exocytosis by regulating a late step in synaptic vesicle fusion. Could play a role in neurotransmitter release by regulating membrane flow in the nerve terminal. Heterodimer with RIMS2. Part of a ternary complex involving PCLO and EPAC2. Interacts with RPH3A. Interacts with the exocyst complex through SEC15. Binds SYTL4, RIMS1 and RIMS2. Interacts with RAB3IP. Interacts with SGSM1 and SGSM3. Specifically expressed in brain. Belongs to the small GTPase superfamily. Rab family. Note: This description may include information from UniProtKB.
