This gene encodes a member of the golgin family, a group of coiled-coil proteins localized to the Golgi apparatus. The encoded protein may function in the secretory pathway. The encoded protein, which also localizes to the cytoplasm, was identified by interactions with the N-terminal kinase-like protein, and thus it may function in mitosis.
