FunctionComponent of the endoplasmic reticulum quality control (ERQC) system also called ER-associated degradation (ERAD) involved in ubiquitin-dependent degradation of misfolded endoplasmic reticulum proteins. Could enhance presenilin-mediated beta-amyloid protein 40 generation.
Tissue specificityWidely expressed; in the brain, expression seems to be restricted to neurons and vascular smooth muscle cells. Present in activated microglia in senile plaques in the brain of patients with Alzheimer disease.
