Previous HGNC Symbols for SRPRA Gene
The gene encodes a subunit of the endoplasmic reticulum signal recognition particle receptor that, in conjunction with the signal recognition particle, is involved in the targeting and translocation of signal sequence tagged secretory and membrane proteins across the endoplasmic reticulum. Alternative splicing results in multiple transcript variants. [provided by RefSeq, Apr 2010]
GeneCards Summary for SRPRA Gene
SRPRA (SRP Receptor Subunit Alpha) is a Protein Coding gene. Diseases associated with SRPRA include Pyrimidine Metabolic Disorder and Orotic Aciduria. Among its related pathways are Gene Expression and Viral mRNA Translation. An important paralog of this gene is SRP54.
UniProtKB/Swiss-Prot Summary for SRPRA Gene
Component of the SRP (signal recognition particle) receptor. Ensures, in conjunction with the signal recognition particle, the correct targeting of the nascent secretory proteins to the endoplasmic reticulum membrane system.
