This gene encodes a protein involved in the sorting of lysosomal proteins. Mutations in this gene are associated with ARCS2 (arthrogryposis, renal dysfunction, and cholestasis-2). Alternative splicing results in multiple transcript variants.[provided by RefSeq, Jul 2010]
GeneCards Summary for VIPAS39 Gene
VIPAS39 (VPS33B Interacting Protein, Apical-Basolateral Polarity Regulator, Spe-39 Homolog) is a Protein Coding gene. Diseases associated with VIPAS39 include Arthrogryposis, Renal Dysfunction, And Cholestasis 2 and Vipas39-Related Arthrogryposis, Renal Dysfunction, And Cholestasis Syndrome.
UniProtKB/Swiss-Prot for VIPAS39 Gene
Proposed to be involved in endosomal maturation implicating in part VPS33B. In epithelial cells, the VPS33B:VIPAS39 complex may play a role in the apical RAB11A-dependent recycling pathway and in the maintenance of the apical-basolateral polarity (PubMed:20190753). May play a role in lysosomal trafficking, probably via association with the core HOPS complex in a discrete population of endosomes; the functions seems to be indepenedent of VPS33B (PubMed:19109425). May play a role in vesicular trafficking during spermatogenesis (By similarity). May be involved in direct or indirect transcriptional regulation of E-cadherin (By similarity).
