Summaries for VAC14 Gene

Entrez Gene Summary for VAC14 Gene

  • The content of phosphatidylinositol 3,5-bisphosphate (PtdIns(3,5)P2) in endosomal membranes changes dynamically with fission and fusion events that generate or absorb intracellular transport vesicles. VAC14 is a component of a trimolecular complex that tightly regulates the level of PtdIns(3,5)P2. Other components of this complex are the PtdIns(3,5)P2-synthesizing enzyme PIKFYVE (MIM 609414) and the PtdIns(3,5)P2 phosphatase FIG4 (MIM 609390). VAC14 functions as an activator of PIKFYVE (Sbrissa et al., 2007 [PubMed 17556371]).[supplied by OMIM, Feb 2010]

GeneCards Summary for VAC14 Gene

VAC14 (Vac14, PIKFYVE Complex Component) is a Protein Coding gene. Diseases associated with VAC14 include Congenital Hydrocephalus. Among its related pathways are PI Metabolism and Glycerophospholipid biosynthesis. GO annotations related to this gene include binding and receptor activity.

UniProtKB/Swiss-Prot for VAC14 Gene

  • The PI(3,5)P2 regulatory complex regulates both the synthesis and turnover of phosphatidylinositol 3,5-bisphosphate (PtdIns(3,5)P2). Acts as a positive activator of PIKfyve kinase activity. Also required to maintain normal levels of phosphatidylinositol 3-phosphate (PtdIns(3)P) and phosphatidylinositol 5-phosphate (PtdIns(5)P). Plays a role in the biogenesis of endosome carrier vesicles (ECV) / multivesicular bodies (MVB) transport intermediates from early endosomes.
