GCC1 is a 775 amino acid cytoplasmic and peripheral membrane protein of the Golgi apparatus. Involved in maintenance of Golgi structure, GCC1 is essential for retrograde transport of cargo from the early endosomes to the trans-Golgi network. GCC1 contains one GRIP domain and is encoded by a gene that maps to human chromosome 7q32.1. Chromosome 7 houses over 1,000 genes, comprises nearly 5 % of the human genome and has been linked to Osteogenesis imperfecta, Pendred syndrome, Lissencephaly, Citrullinemia and Shwachman-Diamond syndrome.
Synonyms: GCC protein, GCC1P, GCC88, Golgi coiled coil 1, Golgi coiled coil protein 1, GRIP and coiled coil domain containing 1, Peripheral membrane Golgi protein, GCC1_HUMAN.
