Automated description from the Alliance of Genome Resources (Release 3.1.1)
Predicted to be involved in endoplasmic reticulum to Golgi vesicle-mediated transport and retrograde vesicle-mediated transport, Golgi to endoplasmic reticulum. Predicted to localize to several cellular components, including COPII-coated ER to Golgi transport vesicle; endoplasmic reticulum-Golgi intermediate compartment; and integral component of organelle membrane. Human ortholog(s) of this gene implicated in neurogenic arthrogryposis multiplex congenita. Orthologous to human ERGIC1 (endoplasmic reticulum-golgi intermediate compartment 1).
