Previous GeneCards Identifiers for SEC24A Gene
The protein encoded by this gene belongs to a family of proteins that are homologous to yeast Sec24. This protein is a component of coat protein II (COPII)-coated vesicles that mediate protein transport from the endoplasmic reticulum. COPII acts in the cytoplasm to promote the transport of secretory, plasma membrane, and vacuolar proteins from the endoplasmic reticulum to the golgi complex. Alternatively spliced transcript variants encoding different isoforms have been found for this gene. [provided by RefSeq, Nov 2011]
GeneCards Summary for SEC24A Gene
SEC24A (SEC24 Homolog A, COPII Coat Complex Component) is a Protein Coding gene. Among its related pathways are Transport to the Golgi and subsequent modification and Metabolism. An important paralog of this gene is SEC24B.
UniProtKB/Swiss-Prot for SEC24A Gene
Component of the COPII coat, that covers ER-derived vesicles involved in transport from the endoplasmic reticulum to the Golgi apparatus. COPII acts in the cytoplasm to promote the transport of secretory, plasma membrane, and vacuolar proteins from the endoplasmic reticulum to the Golgi complex.
