The protein encoded by this gene belongs to the SEC13 family of WD-repeat proteins. It is a constituent of the endoplasmic reticulum and the nuclear pore complex. It has similarity to the yeast SEC13 protein, which is required for vesicle biogenesis from endoplasmic reticulum during the transport of proteins. Multiple alternatively spliced transcript variants have been found. [provided by RefSeq, Oct 2008]
GeneCards Summary for SEC13 Gene
SEC13 (SEC13 Homolog, Nuclear Pore And COPII Coat Complex Component) is a Protein Coding gene. Among its related pathways are Regulation of cholesterol biosynthesis by SREBP (SREBF) and Signaling by GPCR.
UniProtKB/Swiss-Prot for SEC13 Gene
Functions as a component of the nuclear pore complex (NPC) and the COPII coat. At the endoplasmic reticulum, SEC13 is involved in the biogenesis of COPII-coated vesicles.
As a component of the GATOR subcomplex GATOR2, functions as an activator of the amino acid-sensing branch of the TORC1 pathway. Inhibits the GATOR1 subcomplex, an inhibitor of the amino acid-sensing branch of the TORC1 pathway (PubMed:23723238). Functions downstream and is regulated by amino acid sensors like SESN2 (Probable).
