  • Function

    GTPase-activating protein (GAP) for ADP ribosylation factor 1 (ARF1). Hydrolysis of ARF1-bound GTP may lead to dissociation of coatomer from Golgi-derived membranes to allow fusion with target membranes.
  • Tissue specificity

    Widely expressed. Highest expression in endocrine glands (pancreas, pituitary gland, salivary gland, and prostate) and testis with a much higher expression in the testis than in the ovary.
  • Sequence similarities

    Contains 1 Arf-GAP domain.
  • Developmental stage

    Expressed at higher level in adult thymus, brain and lung, than in corresponding fetal tissues. Expressed at lower level in spleen, heart, kidney and liver during development.
  • Cellular localization

    Cytoplasm. Golgi apparatus membrane. Also found on peripheral punctate structures likely to be endoplasmic reticulum-Golgi intermediate compartment.
