Golgi reassembly-stacking protein 2 is a protein that in humans is encoded by the GORASP2 gene.[1][2]

The Golgi complex plays a key role in the sorting and modification of proteins exported from the endoplasmic reticulum. The protein encoded by this gene is involved in establishing the stacked structure of the Golgi apparatus.[2]


GORASP2 has been shown to interact with BLZF1,[3] TGF alpha,[3] TMED2[3] and GOLGA2.[1][3][4]
