Localization for NSG2 Gene

Subcellular locations from UniProtKB/Swiss-Prot for NSG2 Gene

Membrane; Single-pass type II membrane protein. Golgi apparatus, trans-Golgi network membrane. Cell projection, dendrite. Endosome membrane. Early endosome membrane. Late endosome membrane. Lysosome lumen. Cytoplasmic vesicle membrane. Golgi apparatus, Golgi stack membrane. Endosome, multivesicular body membrane. Note=Endocytosed from the cell surface, thus entered into early endosomes, trafficks to late endosomes and degradates in lysosomes (By similarity). Mainly Golgi stack, but also found in small vacuolar organelles and multivesicular bodies. Found in both stationary and motile endosomes (By similarity). {ECO:0000250 UniProtKB:P47759, ECO:0000250 UniProtKB:Q3KR51}.
