Protein transport protein Sec61 subunit alpha isoform 1

The SEC61A1 gene encodes a channel Protein of the endoplasmatic reticulum. Mutations cause autosomal dominant tubulointerstitial disease (ADTKD-SEC61A1), which is also characterized by congenital anemia accompanied, either intrauterine growth retardation or neutropenia, and to a variable degree cleft palate or bifid uvula.
