Vacuolar protein sorting-associated protein 13 (IPR026847)

Short name: VPS13

Overlapping homologous superfamilies


Family relationships


Vacuolar protein sorting-associated protein 13 (VPS13) is involved in the delivery of proteins to the vacuole in vegetatively growing yeast [PMID: 9314526] and also regulates membrane morphogenesis during sporulation [PMID: 22442115]. In humans, the hereditary disorders chorea acanthocytosis and Cohen syndrome are caused by mutations in members of this family that are orthologues of yeast VPS13 (VPS13A and VPS13B respectively). The function of the different proteins in mammals has not been defined [PMID: 22442115, PMID: 15498460].
