At3g51300: ROP1 (RHO-RELATED PROTEIN FROM PLANTS 1)

Encodes a pollen-specific Rop GTPase, member of the Rho family of small GTP binding proteins that interacts with RIC3 and RIC4 to control tip growth in pollen tubes. These three proteins promote the proper targeting of exocytic vesicles in the pollen tube tip. ROP1 activity is regulated by the REN1 GTPase activator protein.
