GOLGA5 Antibody: GOLGA5 (Golgi autoantigen, subfamily A, member 5), also known as GOLGA84, RFG5 (RET-fused gene 5 protein) or GOLIM5, is a ubiquitously expressed single-pass type II coiled-coil membrane protein that is involved in maintaining Golgi structure (1). It is localized to the Golgi apparatus and predominantly found on membranes at the cis side of the Golgi stack (1,2). As a mitotic phosphoprotein, GOLGA5 binds to active Rab 1 and associates with CASP (an isoform of CDP) in a golgin-tethering complex that is believed to play a role in intra-Golgi retrograde transport (3,4). Defects in GOLGA5 are a cause of thyroid papillary carcinoma (TPC) (5).
