This gene is found in a large, low copy repeat sequence or duplicon that is found in multiple copies, which are greater than 90% similar, on chromosome 15. Duplicons are associated with deletions, inversions and other chromosomal rearrangements that underlie genomic disease. This gene is a member of the golgin gene family, whose protein products localize to the Golgi apparatus. The majority of the related gene copies are thought to be transcribed pseudogenes. It is not known whether this gene is a pseudogene or if it encodes a golgin protein.
