FunctionGTPase-activating protein (GAP) for ADP ribosylation factor 1 (ARF1). Implicated in coatomer-mediated protein transport between the Golgi complex and the endoplasmic reticulum. Hydrolysis of ARF1-bound GTP may lead to dissociation of coatomer from Golgi-derived membranes to allow fusion with target membranes.
Sequence similaritiesContains 1 Arf-GAP domain.
Cellular localizationCytoplasm. Golgi apparatus membrane. Also found on peripheral punctate structures likely to be endoplasmic reticulum-Golgi intermediate compartment.
