Sorting Nexin 6 also known as SNX6 is a well-conserved membrane-associated protein belonging to the sorting nexin family that is a component of the retromer complex.[1] The protein contains a coiled-coil domain at its C terminus and a PX domain at its N terminus. Binding to PIM1 causes translocation to the nucleus.[2] SNX6 has been shown to associate with TRAF4.[3]
