UniProtKB/Swiss-Prot Summary for ARFIP2 Gene
Plays a role in constitutive metalloproteinase (MMP) secretion from the trans Golgi network. May have important functions during vesicle biogenesis at certain cargo subdomains, which could be predominantly utilized by secreted MMPs, such as MMP7 and MMP2 (PubMed:26507660). Participates also in autophagy by regulating the starvation-depdendent trafficking of ATG9A vesicles which deliver the PI4-kinase to the autophagosome initiation site (PubMed:31204568). In addition, plays a role in NF-kappa-B inhibition by interacting with IKBKB and IKBKG (PubMed:26296658).
