This gene encodes a protein subunit of the coatomer complex associated with non-clathrin coated vesicles. The coatomer;complex, also known as the coat protein complex 1, forms in the cytoplasm and is recruited to the Golgi by activated;guanosine triphosphatases. Once at the Golgi membrane, the coatomer complex may assist in the movement of protein and;lipid components back to the endoplasmic reticulum. Alternatively spliced transcript variants have been described.
