Gene: VAPA (VAMP associated protein A) Homo sapiens
Symbol: VAPA
Name: VAMP associated protein A
CRRD ID: 737415
Description: Exhibits FFAT motif binding activity; microtubule binding activity; and protein heterodimerization activity. Involved in several processes, including COPII-coated vesicle budding; modulation by host of viral process; and protein localization to endoplasmic reticulum. Localizes to several cellular components, including endoplasmic reticulum; endoplasmic reticulum membrane; and vesicle. Colocalizes with bicellular tight junction and perinuclear region of cytoplasm.
Type: protein-coding
RefSeq Status: REVIEWED
Also known as: 33 kDa VAMP-associated protein; hVAP-33; MGC3745; VAMP (vesicle-associated membrane protein)-associated protein A, 33kDa; VAMP-A; VAMP-associated protein A; VAP-33; VAP-A; VAP33; vesicle-associated membrane protein, associated protein a; vesicle-associated membrane protein-associated protein A
