  • FunctionMay play a role in the dynein-dynactin interactions on the surface of membranous organelles, by associating with these complexes. Regulates coat complex coatomer protein I (COPI)-independent Golgi-endoplasmic reticulum transport by recruiting the dynein-dynactin motor complex.
  • Tissue specificityUbiquitous.
  • Sequence similaritiesBelongs to the BicD family.
  • DomainThe fourth coiled coil region is involved in Golgi targeting and in the interaction with DCTN2.
  • Post-translational
    Phosphorylated by NEK9 in vitro.
  • Cellular localizationGolgi apparatus. Cytoplasm > cytoskeleton. In interphase cells mainly localizes to the Golgi complex and colocalizes with dynactin at microtubule plus ends (By similarity). Its localization is dependent on microtubule morphology.
