Automated description from the Alliance of Genome Resources (Release 3.0)
Predicted to have GTP-dependent protein binding activity and Rab GTPase binding activity. Involved in several processes, including blood coagulation; lysosome localization; and melanocyte differentiation. Predicted to localize to BLOC-2 complex and lysosomal membrane. Used to study Hermansky-Pudlak syndrome 6. Human ortholog(s) of this gene implicated in Hermansky-Pudlak syndrome and Hermansky-Pudlak syndrome 6. Orthologous to human HPS6 (HPS6 biogenesis of lysosomal organelles complex 2 subunit 3).
