Surfeit 4

This gene is located in the surfeit gene cluster, which is comprised of very tightly linked housekeeping genes that do not share sequence similarity. The encoded protein is a conserved integral membrane protein containing multiple putative transmembrane regions. In eukaryotic cells, protein transport between the endoplasmic reticulum and Golgi compartments is mediated in part by non-clathrin-coated vesicular coat proteins (COPs). The specific function of this protein has not been determined but its yeast homolog is directly required for packaging glycosylated pro-alpha-factor into COPII vesicles. This gene uses multiple polyadenylation sites, resulting in transcript length variation. The existence of alternatively spliced transcript variants has been suggested, but their validity has not been determined. [provided by RefSeq, Jul 2008] (from NCBI)

Kaneko et al., Nagasaki, Japan. In Trop Med Health, 2012
Plasmodium falciparum SURFIN(4.1) is a type I transmembrane protein thought to locate on the merozoite surface and to be responsible for a reversible adherence to the erythrocyte before invasion.
Surf4 modulates STIM1-dependent calcium entry.
Baba et al., Yokohama, Japan. In Biochem Biophys Res Commun, 2012
These findings suggest the modulatory function of Surf4 for STIM1-mediated store-operated Ca(2+) entry.
The cargo receptors Surf4, endoplasmic reticulum-Golgi intermediate compartment (ERGIC)-53, and p25 are required to maintain the architecture of ERGIC and Golgi.
Hauri et al., Basel, Switzerland. In Mol Biol Cell, 2008
Silencing Surf4 together with ERGIC-53 or silencing the p24 family member p25 induced an identical phenotype characterized by a reduced number of ERGIC clusters and fragmentation of the Golgi apparatus without effect on anterograde transport.
