Automated description from the Alliance of Genome Resources (Release 3.2)
Exhibits G protein-coupled receptor binding activity; identical protein binding activity; and lipid antigen binding activity. Involved in several processes, including animal organ development; glycosylceramide metabolic process; and protein transport. Localizes to aggresome; extracellular region; and lysosome. Is expressed in several structures, including alimentary system; central nervous system; genitourinary system; hemolymphoid system; and sensory organ. Used to study Gaucher's disease; Krabbe disease; combined saposin deficiency; and metachromatic leukodystrophy. Human ortholog(s) of this gene implicated in atypical Gaucher's disease due to saposin c deficiency and combined saposin deficiency. Orthologous to human PSAP (prosaposin).
