Automated description from the Alliance of Genome Resources (Release 3.1.1)
Involved in several processes, including cellular protein modification process; collagen fibril organization; and collagen metabolic process. Predicted to localize to Golgi apparatus and endosome. Is expressed in several structures, including central nervous system; retina layer; and skeletal muscle. Used to study ARC syndrome. Human ortholog(s) of this gene implicated in arthrogryposis, renal dysfunction, and cholestasis 2. Orthologous to human VIPAS39 (VPS33B interacting protein, apical-basolateral polarity regulator, spe-39 homolog).
