    basic FUNCTION
  • essential protein for bone resorption, may be linked to small GTPase signaling (
  • having a putative critical function in vesicular transport in the osteoclast (
  • involved in osteoclast endosomal vesicle acidification and ACP5 exocytosis, contributing to events involved in osteoclast-osteoblast cross-talk
