Summaries for VPS39 Gene

Entrez Gene Summary for VPS39 Gene

  • This gene encodes a protein that may promote clustering and fusion of late endosomes and lysosomes. The protein may also act as an adaptor protein that modulates the transforming growth factor-beta response by coupling the transforming growth factor-beta receptor complex to the Smad pathway. Alternative splicing results in multiple transcript variants. [provided by RefSeq, Jul 2014]

GeneCards Summary for VPS39 Gene

VPS39 (VPS39, HOPS Complex Subunit) is a Protein Coding gene. Diseases associated with VPS39 include arthrogryposis, renal dysfunction, and cholestasis 1. An important paralog of this gene is TGFBRAP1.

UniProtKB/Swiss-Prot for VPS39 Gene

  • Regulator of TGF-beta/activin signaling, inhibiting SMAD3- and activating SMAD2-dependent transcription. Acts by interfering with SMAD3/SMAD4 complex formation, this would lead to inhibition of SMAD3-dependent transcription and relieve SMAD3 inhibition of SMAD2-dependent promoters, thus increasing SMAD2-dependent transcription. Does not affect TGF-beta-induced SMAD2 or SMAD3 phosphorylation, nor SMAD2/SMAD4 complex formation.

  • Plays a role in vesicle-mediated protein trafficking to lysosomal compartments including the endocytic membrane transport and autophagic pathways. Believed to act in part as a component of the putative HOPS endosomal tethering complex which is 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 (PubMed:23351085). Involved in homotypic vesicle fusions between late endosomes and in heterotypic fusions between late endosomes and lysosomes (PubMed:11448994, PubMed:23351085, PubMed:23167963). Required for fusion of endosomes and autophagosomes with lysosomes (PubMed:25783203).

    Quaternary structure:
    • Homooligomer (PubMed:11448994). Interacts with TGFBR2 and, less efficiently, with TGFBR1; interaction with TGFBR2 is independent of the receptor kinase activity and of the presence of TGF-beta. Also interacts with ACVR2B, but not with BMPR2. Interacts with SMAD4, preferentially following TGF-beta treatment. Does not interact with SAMD2 or SMAD3 (PubMed:12941698). Component of the putative homotypic fusion and vacuole protein sorting (HOPS) complex; the core of which composed of the class C Vps proteins VPS11, VPS16, VPS18 and VPS33A, is associated with VPS39 and VPS41 (PubMed:23351085, PubMed:23901104, PubMed:25908847). Interacts with PLEKHM2; involved in VPS39 recruitment to ARL8B-containing lysosomes (PubMed:25908847). Associates with adaptor protein complex 3 (AP-3) and clathrin:AP-3 complexes (By similarity).
