Gene: CLN8 (CLN8 transmembrane ER and ERGIC protein) Homo sapiens
Symbol: CLN8
Name: CLN8 transmembrane ER and ERGIC protein
Description: Exhibits ceramide binding activity. Involved in several processes, including ceramide metabolic process; cholesterol metabolic process; and phospholipid metabolic process. Localizes to endoplasmic reticulum and endoplasmic reticulum-Golgi intermediate compartment. Implicated in neuronal ceroid lipofuscinosis 8 and neuronal ceroid lipofuscinosis 8 northern epilepsy variant.
Type: protein-coding
RefSeq Status: REVIEWED
Also known as: C8orf61; ceroid-lipofuscinosis, neuronal 8; ceroid-lipofuscinosis, neuronal 8 (epilepsy, progressive with mental retardation); chromosome 8 open reading frame 61; EPMR; FLJ39417; putative uncharacterized protein C8orf61; TLCD6
