Automated description from the Alliance of Genome Resources
Predicted to have SNAP receptor activity and syntaxin binding activity. Predicted to be involved in several processes, including Golgi ribbon formation; retrograde transport, endosome to Golgi; and vesicle docking. Localizes to the Golgi apparatus. Predicted to colocalize with the endoplasmic reticulum. Human ortholog(s) of this gene implicated in pseudohypoparathyroidism type IB. Is expressed in several structures, including central nervous system; connective tissue; genitourinary system; gut; and immune system. Orthologous to several human genes including STX16 (syntaxin 16).
