GDI1 a GDP dissociation inhibitor protein expressed primarily in neural and sensory tissues. GDP dissociation inhibitors are proteins that regulate the GDP-GTP exchange reaction of members of the Rab family, small GTP-binding proteins of the Ras superfamily, that are involved in vesicular trafficking of molecules between cellular organelles. GDIs slow the rate of dissociation of GDP from Rab proteins and release GDP from membrane-bound Rabs. Mutations have been linked to X-linked nonspecific mental retardation.
