Family relationships



Lysosomal-trafficking regulator (LYST) is a large BEACH domain-containing protein that affects lysosome size and quantity [PMID: 25216107]. LYST controls the terminal maturation of perforin-containing vesicles into secretory granules [PMID: 25425525]. Mutations in the LYST gene causes Chediak-Higashi syndrome, which is a rare autosomal-recessive syndrome characterised by hypopigmentation, severe immune deficiency, a bleeding tendency and progressive neurological dysfunction [PMID: 8717042, PMID: 24521565].
