Gene: TOR1A (torsin family 1 member A) Homo sapiens
Symbol: TOR1A
Name: torsin family 1 member A
Description: Exhibits ATPase activity; identical protein binding activity; and kinesin binding activity. Involved in several processes, including positive regulation of synaptic vesicle endocytosis; protein deneddylation; and regulation of dopamine uptake involved in synaptic transmission. Localizes to the endoplasmic reticulum; nuclear membrane; and synaptic vesicle. Implicated in torsion dystonia 1.
Type: protein-coding
RefSeq Status: REVIEWED
Also known as: DQ2; dystonia 1 protein; dystonia 1, torsion (autosomal dominant, torsin A); DYT1; torsin A; torsin ATPase 1; torsin ATPase-1A; torsin family 1, member A (torsin A); torsin-1A
