Entrez Gene Summary for SCOC Gene

  • This gene encodes a short coiled-coiled domain-containing protein that localizes to the Golgi apparatus. The encoded protein interacts with ADP-ribosylation factor-like proteins. Pseudogenes of this gene are found on chromosomes 1 and 14. Alternative splicing results in multiple transcript variants. [provided by RefSeq, Apr 2009]

    159 amino acids
    Molecular mass:
    18045 Da
    Quaternary structure:
    • Interacts with ARL1, ARL2 and ARL3. Directly interacts with FEZ1 and UVRAG. The interaction with UVRAG is reduced by amino acid starvation, but the complex is stabilized in the presence of FEZ1. Interacts with NRBF2.
