GeneCards Summary for SAR1A Gene
SAR1A (Secretion Associated, Ras Related GTPase 1A) is a Protein Coding gene. Diseases associated with SAR1A include platelet storage pool deficiency. Among its related pathways are TGF-Beta Pathway and Regulation of Cholesterol Biosynthesis by SREBP (SREBF). GO annotations related to this gene include GTP binding and GTPase activity. An important paralog of this gene is SAR1B.
UniProtKB/Swiss-Prot for SAR1A Gene
Involved in transport from the endoplasmic reticulum to the Golgi apparatus (By similarity). Required to maintain SEC16A localization at discrete locations on the ER membrane perhaps by preventing its dissociation. SAR1A-GTP-dependent assembly of SEC16A on the ER membrane forms an organized scaffold defining endoplasmic reticulum exit sites (ERES).
