    its inactive state. It binds to Rab escort protein (REP), which directs it to the RGGT, where the Rab protein is isoprenylated by addition of geranylgeranyl pyrophosphate (GPP) group or farnesyl pyrophosphate (FPP) onto the cysteine. The REP then transports the prenylated Rab protein to its target membrane where guanine exchange factor (GEF) exchanges the GDP to GTP to activate it. The Rab protein can then associate with its effector protein, specific to the Rab type, to carry out functions such…
