Automated description from the Alliance of Genome Resources
Exhibits protein transmembrane transporter activity. Involved in several processes, including anterograde synaptic vesicle transport; platelet dense granule organization; and secretion of lysosomal enzymes. Localizes to the BLOC-1 complex. Used to study Hermansky-Pudlak syndrome 8. Human ortholog(s) of this gene implicated in Hermansky-Pudlak syndrome 8. Orthologous to human BLOC1S3 (biogenesis of lysosomal organelles complex 1 subunit 3).
