From NCBI Gene:
This gene encodes a protein belonging to the L-type lectin group of type 1 membrane proteins, which function in the mammalian early secretory pathway. These proteins contain luminal carbohydrate recognition domains, which display homology to leguminous lectins. Unlike other proteins of the group, which cycle in the early secretory pathway and are predominantly associated with post endoplasmic reticulum membranes, the protein encoded by this gene is a non-cycling resident protein of the ER, where it functions as a cargo receptor for glycoproteins. It is proposed to regulate exchange of folded proteins for transport to the Golgi and exchange of misfolded glycoproteins for transport to the ubiquitin-proteasome pathway.

May be involved in the regulation of export from the endoplasmic reticulum of a subset of glycoproteins. May function as a regulator of ERGIC-53.

- Mental retardation, autosomal recessive 52
Mental retardation, autosomal recessive 52 (MRT52): A form of mental retardation, a disorder characterized by significantly below average general intellectual functioning associated with impairments in adaptive behavior and manifested during the developmental period. MRT52 clinical features include global developmental delay, severe intellectual disability with poor speech, and mild seizures in early childhood. [MIM:616887]
