External Ids for CORO7 Gene
Coronins, such as CORO7, constitute an evolutionarily conserved family of WD-repeat actin-binding proteins. CORO7 plays a role in Golgi complex morphology and function (Rybakin et al., 2004, 2006 [PubMed 15327992] [PubMed 16905771]).[supplied by OMIM, Mar 2008]
GeneCards Summary for CORO7 Gene
CORO7 (Coronin 7) is a Protein Coding gene. Among its related pathways are Biosynthesis of the N-glycan precursor (dolichol lipid-linked oligosaccharide, LLO) and transfer to a nascent protein and Mitochondrial Protein Import. An important paralog of this gene is CORO6.
UniProtKB/Swiss-Prot for CORO7 Gene
F-actin regulator involved in anterograde Golgi to endosome transport: upon ubiquitination via Lys-33-linked ubiquitin chains by the BCR(KLHL20) E3 ubiquitin ligase complex, interacts with EPS15 and localizes to the trans-Golgi network, where it promotes actin polymerization, thereby facilitating post-Golgi trafficking. May play a role in the maintenance of the Golgi apparatus morphology.
