Protein transport protein Sec23A - Q15436 (SC23A_HUMAN)


Protein Feature View of PDB entries mapped to a UniProtKB sequence  

Component of the coat protein complex II (COPII) which promotes the formation of transport vesicles from the endoplasmic reticulum (ER). The coat has two main functions, the physical deformation of the endoplasmic reticulum membrane into vesicles and the selection of cargo molecules for their transport to the Golgi complex. Required for the translocation of insulin-induced glucose transporter SLC2A4/GLUT4 to the cell membrane (By similarity). UniProt

Subunit Structure
COPII is composed of at least five proteins: the Sec23/24 complex, the Sec13/31 complex and Sar1 (PubMed:17499046). Interacts with SEC23IP. Interacts with HTR4 (By similarity). Interacts with SEC16A (PubMed:17192411). Interacts with SLC6A4 (By similarity). Interacts (as part of the Sec23/24 complex) with SEC22B; recruits SEC22B into COPII-coated vesicles and allows the transport of this cargo from the endoplasmic reticulum to the Golgi (PubMed:17499046). Interacts (via Gelsolin-like repeat) with MIA2 and MIA3; specifically involved in the transport of large cargos like the collagen COL7A1 (PubMed:27551091, PubMed:28442536). Interacts with DDHD1 (By similarity). Interacts with TMEM39A (PubMed:31806350). Interacts with SACM1L; this interaction is reduced in the absence of TMEM39A (PubMed:31806350). UniProt
The Gelsolin-like repeat mediates interaction with proteins containing PPP motifs that include MIA2, MIA3 but also SEC31A. These interactions are probably competitive. UniProt

Data origin/color codes
The vertical color bar on the left side indicates data provenance.
Data in green originates from UniProtKB  
Variation data (sourced from UniProt) shows non-genetic variation from the ExPASy   and dbSNP   websites.
Data in yellow originates from Pfam  , by interacting with the HMMER3 web site  
Data in purple originates from Phosphosite  .
Data in orange originates from the SCOP   (version 1.75) and SCOPe   (version 2.04) classifications.
Data in grey has been calculated using BioJava  . Protein disorder predictions are based on JRONN (Troshin, P. and Barton, G. J. unpublished), a Java implementation of RONN  
  • Red: potentially disorderd region
  • Blue: probably ordered region.
Hydropathy has been calculated using a sliding window of 15 residues and summing up scores from standard hydrophobicity tables.
  • Red: hydrophobic
  • Blue: hydrophilic.
Data in lilac represent the genomic exon structure projected onto the UniProt sequence.
Data in blue originates from PDB
  • Secstruc: Secondary structure projected from representative PDB entries onto the UniProt sequence.
Sequence Mismatches It is now possible to see information about expression tags, cloning artifacts, and many other details related to sequence mismatches.
Icons represent a number of different sequence modifications that can be observed in PDB files. For example the 'T' icon T represents expression tags that have been added to the sequence. The 'E' icon E represents an engineered mutation. However, besides these two, there are many other icons. For more information about the meaning and exact position of a sequence modification, move the cursor over the icon.
