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 Lysosome and Vesicle-mediated transport. GO annotations related to this gene include binding and protein transporter activity. An important paralog of this gene is AP1B1.
