Automated description from the Alliance of Genome Resources
Predicted to have GTP-dependent protein binding activity and protein phosphatase binding activity. Involved in several processes, including antigen processing and presentation, exogenous lipid antigen via MHC class Ib; positive regulation of NK T cell differentiation; and synaptic vesicle transport. Predicted to localize to the trans-Golgi network. Used to study Hermansky-Pudlak syndrome 2 and platelet storage pool deficiency. Human ortholog(s) of this gene implicated in Hermansky-Pudlak syndrome; Hermansky-Pudlak syndrome 2; interstitial lung disease; neutropenia; and pulmonary fibrosis. Orthologous to human AP3B1 (adaptor related protein complex 3 subunit beta 1).
