GeneCards Summary for BORCS5 Gene

BORCS5 (BLOC-1 Related Complex Subunit 5) is a Protein Coding gene.

UniProtKB/Swiss-Prot for BORCS5 Gene

  • As part of the BORC complex may play a role in lysosomes movement and localization at the cell periphery. Associated with the cytosolic face of lysosomes, the BORC complex may recruit ARL8B and couple lysosomes to microtubule plus-end-directed kinesin motor. Thereby, it may indirectly play a role in cell spreading and motility.
