The role of rab33b, a Golgi-specific rab protein, was investigated. Microinjection of rab33b mutants stabilised in the GTP-specific state resulted in a marked inhibition of anterograde transport within the Golgi and in the recycling of glycosyltransferases from the Golgi to the ER, respectively. A GST-rab33b fusion protein stabilised in its GTP form was found to interact by Western blotting or mass spectroscopy with Golgi protein GM130 and rabaptin-5 and rabex-5, two rab effector molecules thought to function exclusively in the endocytic pathway. A similar binding was seen to rab1 but not to rab6, both Golgi rabs. In contrast, rab5 was as expected, shown to bind rabaptin-5 and rabex-5 as well as the endosomal effector protein EEA1 but not GM130. No binding of EEA1 was seen to any of the Golgi rabs.
