From NCBI Gene:
The protein encoded by this gene is a member of the SEC24 subfamily of the SEC23/SEC24 family, which is involved in vesicle trafficking. The encoded protein has similarity to yeast Sec24p component of COPII. COPII is the coat protein complex responsible for vesicle budding from the ER. This gene product is implicated in the shaping of the vesicle, and also in cargo selection and concentration. Mutations in this gene have been associated with Cole-Carpenter syndrome, a disorder affecting bone formation, resulting in craniofacial malformations and bones that break easily. Alternative splicing results in multiple transcript variants encoding different isoforms. [provided by RefSeq, Dec 2015]
Component of the COPII coat, that covers ER-derived vesicles involved in transport from the endoplasmic reticulum to the Golgi apparatus. COPII acts in the cytoplasm to promote the transport of secretory, plasma membrane, and vacuolar proteins from the endoplasmic reticulum to the Golgi complex.

- Cole-carpenter syndrome 2
Cole-Carpenter syndrome 2 (CLCRP2): A form of Cole-Carpenter syndrome, a disorder characterized by features of osteogenesis imperfecta such as bone deformities and severe bone fragility with frequent fractures, in association with craniosynostosis, ocular proptosis, hydrocephalus, growth failure and distinctive facial features. Craniofacial findings include marked frontal bossing, midface hypoplasia, and micrognathia. Despite the craniosynostosis and hydrocephalus, intellectual development is normal. CLCRP2 inheritance is autosomal recessive. [MIM:616294]
