GOLGA5

(redirected from golgin A5)

GOLGA5

A gene on chromosome 14q that encodes golgin A5, a protein which localises to the Golgi apparatus, stimulates the formation of Golgi stacks and ribbons, and is involved in intra-Golgi retrograde transport.

Molecular pathology
Defects in GOLGA5 have been linked to papillary carcinoma of the thyroid in a translocation t(10;14)(q11;q32) with RET, which generates the PTC5 (RET/GOLGA5) oncogene.
