ATG18 Atg18p

Atg18, Atg18p, WIPI49, WIPI-1
WD40 repeat proteins are key components of many essential biologic functions. They regulate the assembly of multiprotein complexes by presenting a beta-propeller platform for simultaneous and reversible protein-protein interactions. Members of the WIPI subfamily of WD40 repeat proteins, such as WIPI1, have a 7-bladed propeller structure and contain a conserved motif for interaction with phospholipids (Proikas-Cezanne et al., 2004 [PubMed 15602573]).[supplied by OMIM, Mar 2008] (from NCBI)

Characterization of PROPPIN-Phosphoinositide Binding and Role of Loop 6CD in PROPPIN-Membrane Binding.
Kühnel et al., Göttingen, Germany. In Biophys J, Jun 2015
ITC measurements showed that the yeast PROPPIN family members Atg18, Atg21, and Hsv2 bind PtdIns3P and PtdIns(3,5)P2 with high affinities in the nanomolar to low-micromolar range and have two phosphoinositide (PIP)-binding sites.

Murata et al., Tokyo, Japan. In Plos Pathog, Mar 2015
Furthermore, we showed that the autophagy-related proteins Atg9 and WIPI1, but not DFCP1, were required for the biogenesis of the ER-derived membrane compartments.
Fluorescence-based imaging of autophagy progression by human WIPI protein detection.
Proikas-Cezanne et al., Tübingen, Germany. In Methods, Mar 2015
The specific autophagosomal localization of both WIPI1 and WIPI2 (refered to as WIPI puncta) has been employed to assess autophagy using fluorescence microscopy methods, such as confocal and live-cell video microscopy and was extended for automated high-throughput image acquisition and analyses procedures.
WIPI proteins: essential PtdIns3P effectors at the nascent autophagosome.
Kohlbacher et al., Tübingen, Germany. In J Cell Sci, Feb 2015
Members of the human WD-repeat protein interacting with phosphoinositides (WIPI) family play an important role in recognizing and decoding the PtdIns3P signal at the nascent autophagosome, and hence function as autophagy-specific PtdIns3P-binding effectors, similar to their ancestral yeast Atg18 homolog.
TipC and the chorea-acanthocytosis protein VPS13A regulate autophagy in Dictyostelium and human HeLa cells.
Escalante et al., Madrid, Spain. In Autophagy, 2014
Dictyostelium cells lacking TipC displayed a reduced number of autophagosomes visualized with the markers GFP-Atg18 and GFP-Atg8 and an impaired autophagic degradation as determined by a proteolytic cleavage assay.

WIPI β-propellers in autophagy-related diseases and longevity.
Proikas-Cezanne et al., Tübingen, Germany. In Biochem Soc Trans, 2013
In the present article, we discuss the role of human WIPIs in autophagy, and the identification of evolutionarily conserved amino acids of WIPI-1 that confer PtdIns(3)P binding downstream of mTORC1 inhibition.
