GeneID: 319


Common Name: SORCS1 Type: Gene
Chromosome: 10 (NC_000010.11) Locus: NG_029120.1 (SORCS1)
HUGO Symbol: SORCS1 Full Name: sortilin related VPS10 domain containing receptor 1
Exons: 26 Introns: 25

The SORCS1 gene encodes a vacuolar protein sorting protein 10 (VPS10) domain-containing receptor that binds neuropeptides. VPS10 functions as a sorting receptor in the Golgi compartment required for the intracellular sorting and delivery of soluble vacuolar proteins, like carboxypeptidase Y (CPY) and proteinase A. The VPS10 domain-containing receptor protein family contains five type I membrane homologs (SORL1, SORT1, SorCS1, SorCS2 and SorCS3) that are strongly expressed in the central nervous system. Genetic variance in SORCS1 gene associated with episodes of pain in patients with sickle cell disease.
