RHD3/Sey1 (IPR008803)

Short name: RHD3/Sey1

Family relationships



This family consists of plant root hair defective 3 (RHD3) protein and its homologues from other eukaryotes. RHD3 is a conserved protein with putative GTP-binding motifs that is implicated in the control of vesicle trafficking between the endoplasmic reticulum and the Golgi compartments [PMID: 9087433]. It is required for appropriate root and root hair cells enlargement [PMID: 9087433]. It may play a role in cell wall biosynthesis and actin organisation [PMID: 12068108, PMID: 12844267]. Its homologue from Saccharomyces cerevisiae, Sey1, is a dynamin-like GTPase that mediates homotypic ER fusion [PMID: 19665976].
