Previous GeneCards Identifiers for ARFRP1 Gene
The protein encoded by this gene is a membrane-associated GTP-ase which localizes to the plasma membrane and is related to the ADP-ribosylation factor (ARF) and ARF-like (ARL) proteins. This gene plays a role in membrane trafficking between the trans-Golgi network and endosomes. Alternatively spliced transcript variants encoding different isoforms have been identified.

GeneCards Summary for ARFRP1 Gene
ARFRP1 (ADP Ribosylation Factor Related Protein 1) is a Protein Coding gene. Diseases associated with ARFRP1 include Dyskeratosis Congenita, Autosomal Recessive 5 and Wiskott-Aldrich Syndrome. Among its related pathways are Retrograde transport at the Trans-Golgi-Network and Golgi-to-ER retrograde transport. Gene Ontology (GO) annotations related to this gene include GTP binding and obsolete signal transducer activity. An important paralog of this gene is ARL3.
UniProtKB/Swiss-Prot Summary for ARFRP1 Gene
Trans-Golgi-associated GTPase that regulates protein sorting. Controls the targeting of ARL1 and its effector to the trans-Golgi. Required for the lipidation of chylomicrons in the intestine and required for VLDL lipidation in the liver.
