Previous GeneCards Identifiers for SEC24C Gene
The protein encoded by this gene is a member of the SEC24 subfamily of the SEC23/SEC24 family, which is involved in vesicle trafficking. The encoded protein has similarity to yeast Sec24p component of COPII. COPII is the coat protein complex responsible for vesicle budding from the ER. The product of this gene may play a role in shaping the vesicle, as well as in cargo selection and concentration. Alternatively spliced transcript variants encoding the same protein have been identified. [provided by RefSeq, Jul 2008]
GeneCards Summary for SEC24C Gene
SEC24C (SEC24 Homolog C, COPII Coat Complex Component) is a Protein Coding gene. Diseases associated with SEC24C include Velocardiofacial Syndrome. Among its related pathways are Metabolism of proteins and Transport to the Golgi and subsequent modification. An important paralog of this gene is SEC24D.
UniProtKB/Swiss-Prot for SEC24C Gene
Component of the coat protein complex II (COPII) which promotes the formation of transport vesicles from the endoplasmic reticulum (ER). The coat has two main functions, the physical deformation of the endoplasmic reticulum membrane into vesicles and the selection of cargo molecules for their transport to the Golgi complex (PubMed:10214955, PubMed:17499046, PubMed:18843296, PubMed:20427317). Plays a central role in cargo selection within the COPII complex and together with SEC24D may have a different specificity compared to SEC24A and SEC24B (PubMed:17499046, PubMed:20427317, PubMed:18843296). May more specifically package GPI-anchored proteins through the cargo receptor TMED10 (PubMed:20427317). May also be specific for IxM motif-containing cargos like the SNAREs GOSR2 and STX5 (PubMed:18843296).
