GeneCards Summary for SAR1A Gene
SAR1A (Secretion Associated Ras Related GTPase 1A) is a Protein Coding gene. Diseases associated with SAR1A include Chylomicron Retention Disease and Vohwinkel Syndrome. Among its related pathways are Delta508-CFTR traffic / ER-to-Golgi in CF and Chks in Checkpoint Regulation. Gene Ontology (GO) annotations related to this gene include GTP binding and obsolete signal transducer activity. An important paralog of this gene is SAR1B.
UniProtKB/Swiss-Prot Summary for SAR1A Gene
Involved in transport from the endoplasmic reticulum to the Golgi apparatus (By similarity). Required to maintain SEC16A localization at discrete locations on the ER membrane perhaps by preventing its dissociation. SAR1A-GTP-dependent assembly of SEC16A on the ER membrane forms an organized scaffold defining endoplasmic reticulum exit sites (ERES).
