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 coat protein complex II (COPII) which promotes the formation of transport vesicles from the endoplasmic reticulum (ER). The coat has two main functions, the physical deformation of the endoplasmic reticulum membrane into vesicles and the selection of cargo molecules for their transport to the Golgi complex (PubMed:17499046, PubMed:20427317, PubMed:18843296). Plays a central role in cargo selection within the COPII complex and together with SEC24C may have a different specificity compared to SEC24A and SEC24B (PubMed:17499046, PubMed:20427317, PubMed:18843296). May more specifically package GPI-anchored proteins through the cargo receptor TMED10 (PubMed:20427317). May also be specific for IxM motif-containing cargos like the SNAREs GOSR2 and STX5 (PubMed:18843296).

- 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]
