GABARAP Ubiquitin-like modifier that plays a role in intracellular transport of GABA(A) receptors and its interaction with the cytoskeleton. Involved in apoptosis. Involved in autophagy. Whereas LC3s are involved in elongation of the phagophore membrane, the GABARAP/GATE-16 subfamily is essential for a later stage in autophagosome maturation. Belongs to the ATG8 family. Heart, brain, placenta, liver, skeletal muscle, kidney and pancreas. Note: This description may include information from UniProtKB.
