Summaries for VBP1 Gene

Entrez Gene Summary for VBP1 Gene

  • The protein encoded by this gene interacts with the Von Hippel-Lindau protein to form an intracellular complex. The encoded protein functions as a chaperone protein, and may play a role in the transport of the Von Hippel-Lindau protein from the perinuclear granules to the nucleus or cytoplasm. Alternative splicing and the use of alternate transcription start sites results in multiple transcript variants encoding different protein isoforms. [provided by RefSeq, Jan 2015]

GeneCards Summary for VBP1 Gene

VBP1 (Von Hippel-Lindau Binding Protein 1) is a Protein Coding gene. Diseases associated with VBP1 include neuroblastoma. Among its related pathways are Biosynthesis of the N-glycan precursor (dolichol lipid-linked oligosaccharide, LLO) and transfer to a nascent protein and Protein folding. GO annotations related to this gene include unfolded protein binding.

UniProtKB/Swiss-Prot for VBP1 Gene

  • Binds specifically to cytosolic chaperonin (c-CPN) and transfers target proteins to it. Binds to nascent polypeptide chain and promotes folding in an environment in which there are many competing pathways for nonnative proteins.
