Vectors for Human COPA

Gene Information

  • Offical Gene Symbol COPA
  • Species Human (Homo sapiens)
  • Offical Full Name COPI coat complex subunit alpha
  • Other Aliases AILJK; HEP-COP; alpha-COP
  • Other Desigations coatomer subunit alpha; alpha coat protein; coatomer protein complex subunit alpha; proxenin; xenin
  • Gene Type protein-coding
  • Summary
    In eukaryotic cells, protein transport between the endoplasmic reticulum and Golgi compartments is mediated in part by non-clathrin-coated vesicular coat proteins (COPs). Seven coat proteins have been identified, and they represent subunits of a complex known as coatomer. The subunits are designated alpha-COP, beta-COP, beta-prime-COP, gamma-COP, delta-COP, epsilon-COP, and zeta-COP. The alpha-COP, encoded by COPA, shares high sequence similarity with RET1P, the alpha subunit of the coatomer complex in yeast. Also, the N-terminal 25 amino acids of alpha-COP encode the bioactive peptide, xenin, which stimulates exocrine pancreatic secretion and may act as a gastrointestinal hormone. Alternative splicing results in multiple splice forms encoding distinct isoforms. [provided by RefSeq, Jul 2008]
