This gene encodes a subunit of a heterotetrameric adapter-like complex 4 that is involved in targeting proteins from the trans-Golgi network to the endosomal-lysosomal system. Mutations in this gene are associated with cerebral palsy spastic quadriplegic type 5 (CPSQ5) disorder. Alternatively spliced transcript variants encoding different isoforms have been found for this gene. [provided by RefSeq, Dec 2011]
GeneCards Summary for AP4B1 Gene
AP4B1 (Adaptor Related Protein Complex 4 Beta 1 Subunit) is a Protein Coding gene. Diseases associated with AP4B1 include Spastic Paraplegia 47, Autosomal Recessive and Severe Intellectual Disability And Progressive Spastic Paraplegia. Among its related pathways are Clathrin derived vesicle budding and Vesicle-mediated transport. GO annotations related to this gene include binding and protein transporter activity. An important paralog of this gene is AP2B1.
