Gerodermia osteodysplastica (GO) is an autosomal recessive disorder characterized by wrinkly skin and osteoporosis. Here we demonstrate that GO is caused by loss-of-function mutations in SCYL1BP1, which is expressed at high levels in skin and osteoblasts. The protein localizes to the Golgi apparatus and interacts with Rab6, identifying SCYL1BP1 as a novel golgin. These results associate abnormalities of the secretory pathway with age-related changes in connective tissues.
