Gene: PLEKHA8 (pleckstrin homology domain containing A8) Homo sapiens
Symbol: PLEKHA8
Name: pleckstrin homology domain containing A8
Description: Exhibits several functions, including ceramide binding activity; glycolipid transfer activity; and phosphatidylinositol-4-phosphate binding activity. Involved in ER to Golgi ceramide transport. Localizes to the nucleoplasm and trans-Golgi network; INTERACTS WITH 2-hydroxypropanoic acid; arsane; arsenic atom.
Type: protein-coding
RefSeq Status: VALIDATED
