GeneCards Summary for VAMP8 Gene

VAMP8 (Vesicle Associated Membrane Protein 8) is a Protein Coding gene. Diseases associated with VAMP8 include Hemophagocytic Lymphohistiocytosis, Familial, 5 and Hemophagocytic Lymphohistiocytosis, Familial, 4. Among its related pathways are Innate Immune System and Clathrin derived vesicle budding. Gene Ontology (GO) annotations related to this gene include syntaxin binding and SNAP receptor activity. An important paralog of this gene is VAMP2.

UniProtKB/Swiss-Prot Summary for VAMP8 Gene

  • SNAREs, soluble N-ethylmaleimide-sensitive factor-attachment protein receptors, are essential proteins for fusion of cellular membranes. SNAREs localized on opposing membranes assemble to form a trans-SNARE complex, an extended, parallel four alpha-helical bundle that drives membrane fusion. VAMP8 is a SNARE involved in autophagy through the direct control of autophagosome membrane fusion with the lysososome membrane via its interaction with the STX17-SNAP29 binary t-SNARE complex (PubMed:23217709, PubMed:25686604). Also required for dense-granule secretion in platelets (PubMed:12130530). Plays also a role in regulated enzyme secretion in pancreatic acinar cells (By similarity). Involved in the abscission of the midbody during cell division, which leads to completely separate daughter cells (By similarity). Involved in the homotypic fusion of early and late endosomes (By similarity).

    Quaternary structure:
    • Forms a SNARE complex composed of VAMP8, SNAP29 and STX17 involved in fusion of autophagosome with lysosome (PubMed:25686604). Found in a number of SNARE complexes with NAPA, SNAP23, SNAP25, STX1A, STX4, STX7, STX8 and VTI1B (PubMed:12130530). Interacts with PICALM (By similarity). SNARE complex formation and binding by PICALM are mutually exclusive processes for VAMP8 (By similarity). Interacts with SBF2/MTMR13 (PubMed:25648148). Interacts with RAB21 (in GTP-bound form) in response to starvation; the interaction probably regulates VAMP8 endolysosomal trafficking (PubMed:25648148).
