Summaries for FAM160A2 Gene

Entrez Gene Summary for FAM160A2 Gene

  • The protein encoded by this gene is part of the FTS/Hook/FHIP (FHF) complex, which can interact with members of the homotypic vesicular protein sorting (HOPS) complex. This interaction suggests that the encoded protein is involved in vesicle trafficking. [provided by RefSeq, Dec 2016]

GeneCards Summary for FAM160A2 Gene

FAM160A2 (Family With Sequence Similarity 160 Member A2) is a Protein Coding gene. An important paralog of this gene is FAM160A1.

UniProtKB/Swiss-Prot for FAM160A2 Gene

  • Component of the FTS/Hook/FHIP complex (FHF complex). The FHF complex may function to promote vesicle trafficking and/or fusion via the homotypic vesicular protein sorting complex (the HOPS complex).
