Plays a role in autophagy. Cycles between a juxta- nuclear trans-Golgi network compartment and late endosomes. Nutrient starvation induces accumulation on autophagosomes. Starvation-dependent trafficking requires ULK1, ATG13 and FAM48A. Interacts with FAM48A. Belongs to the ATG9 family. 3 isoforms of the human protein are produced by alternative splicing.
