Summaries for EXOC6 Gene

Entrez Gene Summary for EXOC6 Gene

  • The protein encoded by this gene is highly similar to the Saccharomyces cerevisiae SEC15 gene product, which is essential for vesicular traffic from the Golgi apparatus to the cell surface in yeast. It is one of the components of a multiprotein complex required for exocytosis. The 5' portion of this gene and two neighboring cytochrome p450 genes are included in a deletion that results in an autosomal-dominant form of nonsyndromic optic nerve aplasia (ONA). Alternative splicing and the use of alternative promoters results in multiple transcript variants. A paralogous gene encoding a similar protein is present on chromosome 2.

GeneCards Summary for EXOC6 Gene

EXOC6 (Exocyst Complex Component 6) is a Protein Coding gene. Diseases associated with EXOC6 include Bardet-Biedl Syndrome 18. Among its related pathways are Peptide hormone metabolism and Organelle biogenesis and maintenance. An important paralog of this gene is EXOC6B.

UniProtKB/Swiss-Prot for EXOC6 Gene

  • Component of the exocyst complex involved in the docking of exocytic vesicles with fusion sites on the plasma membrane. Together with RAB11A, RAB3IP, RAB8A, PARD3, PRKCI, ANXA2, CDC42 and DNMBP promotes transcytosis of PODXL to the apical membrane initiation sites (AMIS), apical surface formation and lumenogenesis (By similarity).
