Previous GeneCards Identifiers for SCAMP2 Gene
This gene product belongs to the SCAMP family of proteins which are secretory carrier membrane proteins. They function as carriers to the cell surface in post-golgi recycling pathways. Different family members are highly related products of distinct genes, and are usually expressed together. These findings suggest that the SCAMPs may function at the same site during vesicular transport rather than in separate pathways. Alternate splicing results in multiple transcript variants.

GeneCards Summary for SCAMP2 Gene
SCAMP2 (Secretory Carrier Membrane Protein 2) is a Protein Coding gene. Diseases associated with SCAMP2 include Branchiootorenal Syndrome 1 and Leopard Syndrome 1. Among its related pathways are Monoamine Transport and Arf6 trafficking events. An important paralog of this gene is SCAMP1.
