GeneID: 160


Common Name: GOLGB1 Type: Gene
Chromosome: 3 (NC_000003.12) Locus: N/A
HUGO Symbol: GOLGB1 Full Name: golgin B1
Exons: 21 Introns: 20

The encoded protein belongs to a family of coiled-coil proteins known as giantins, which play an important role in the regulation of Golgi apparatus structure and function. GOLGB1 is localised to the Golgi apparatus via a C-terminal membrane-anchoring domain (CMD). It mediates tethering of vesicles at the Golgi membrane and subsequent transport of their cargo through the Golgi stacks. The Y1212C mutation, located in a highly conserved coiled-coil region of the N-terminus, was shown to confer a protective effect against ischemic stroke in individuals with sickle cell disease. Other mutations in this gene associated with osteochondrodysplasia.
