Summaries for VPS33A Gene

Entrez Gene Summary for VPS33A Gene

  • Vesicle mediated protein sorting plays an important role in segregation of intracellular molecules into distinct organelles. Genetic studies in yeast have identified more than 40 vacuolar protein sorting (VPS) genes involved in vesicle transport to vacuoles. This gene is a member of the Sec-1 domain family, and it encodes a protein similar to the yeast class C Vps33 protein. The mammalian class C VPS proteins are predominantly associated with late endosomes/lysosomes, and like their yeast counterparts, may mediate vesicle trafficking steps in the endosome/lysosome pathway.

GeneCards Summary for VPS33A Gene

VPS33A (VPS33A, CORVET/HOPS Core Subunit) is a Protein Coding gene. An important paralog of this gene is VPS33B.

UniProtKB/Swiss-Prot for VPS33A Gene

  • Plays a role in vesicle-mediated protein trafficking to lysosomal compartments including the endocytic membrane transport and autophagic pathways. Believed to act as a core component of the putative HOPS and CORVET endosomal tethering complexes which are proposed to be involved in the Rab5-to-Rab7 endosome conversion probably implicating MON1A/B, and via binding SNAREs and SNARE complexes to mediate tethering and docking events during SNARE-mediated membrane fusion. The HOPS complex is proposed to be recruited to Rab7 on the late endosomal membrane and to regulate late endocytic, phagocytic and autophagic traffic towards lysosomes. The CORVET complex is proposed to function as a Rab5 effector to mediate early endosome fusion probably in specific endosome subpopulations (PubMed:23351085, PubMed:24554770, PubMed:25266290, PubMed:25783203). Required for fusion of endosomes and autophagosomes with lysosomes; the function is dependent on its association with VPS16 but not VIPAS39 (PubMed:25783203). The function in autophagosome-lysosome fusion implicates STX17 but not UVRAG (PubMed:24554770).

    Size:

    Molecular mass:
    67611 Da
    Quaternary structure:
    • Core component of at least two putative endosomal tethering complexes, the homotypic fusion and vacuole protein sorting (HOPS) complex and the class C core vacuaole/endosome tethering (CORVET) complex. Their common core is composed of the class C Vps proteins VPS11, VPS16, VPS18 and VPS33A, which in HOPS further associates with VPS39 and VPS41 and in CORVET with VPS8 and TGFBRAP1 (PubMed:23351085, PubMed:25783203, PubMed:25266290 PubMed:23901104). Interacts with RAB5C (By similarity). Interacts with UVRAG, STX17, MON1A and MON1B (PubMed:18552835, PubMed:20434987, PubMed:24554770). Interacts with VIPAS39; however, this interaction is debated (PubMed:19109425, PubMed:23901104). Associates with adaptor protein complex 3 (AP-3) and clathrin (PubMed:21411634).
