Unc-13 homolog B

Munc13, Munc13-2, Hmunc13
This gene is expressed in the kidney cortical epithelial cells and is upregulated by hyperglycemia. The encoded protein shares a high level of similarity to the rat homolog, and contains 3 C2 domains and a diacylglycerol-binding C1 domain. Hyperglycemia increases the levels of diacylglycerol, which has been shown to induce apoptosis in cells transfected with this gene and thus contribute to the renal cell complications of hyperglycemia. Studies in other species also indicate a role for this protein in the priming step of synaptic vesicle exocytosis. [provided by RefSeq, Jul 2008] (from NCBI)

Synergistic defects of different molecules in the cytotoxic pathway lead to clinical familial hemophagocytic lymphohistiocytosis.
Filipovich et al., Cincinnati, United States. In Blood, 2014
Several molecules (LYST, AP3, RAB27A, STX11, STXBP2, MUNC13-4, and PRF1) have been associated with the function of cytotoxic lymphocytes.
Contact-induced clustering of syntaxin and munc18 docks secretory granules at the exocytosis site.
Barg et al., Uppsala, Sweden. In Nat Commun, 2013
Here we provide quantitative measurements of several exocytosis proteins (syntaxin, SNAP25, munc18, munc13 and rab3) at the insulin granule release site and show that docking coincides with rapid de novo formation of syntaxin1/munc18 clusters at the nascent docking site.
MUNC13-4 protein regulates the oxidative response and is essential for phagosomal maturation and bacterial killing in neutrophils.
Catz et al., Los Angeles, United States. In J Biol Chem, 2013
MUNC13-4 is a RAB27A effector that coordinates exocytosis in hematopoietic cells, and its deficiency is associated with the human immunodeficiency familial hemophagocytic lymphohistiocytosis type 3.
Munc13 controls the location and efficiency of dense-core vesicle release in neurons.
Toonen et al., Amsterdam, Netherlands. In J Cell Biol, 2013
In munc13-1/2-null mutant neurons, synaptic DCV release was reduced but not abolished, and synaptic preference was lost.
Munc13-independent vesicle priming at mouse photoreceptor ribbon synapses.
Varoqueaux et al., Göttingen, Germany. In J Neurosci, 2012
photoreceptor ribbon synapses and conventional synapses differ fundamentally with regard to their dependence on synaptic vesicles priming proteins of the Munc13 family

There was no mutation identified in the LYST gene for patient 2. CD107α expression of NK cells and CTL in the suspected FHL patients and in mirror of these findings, no underlying gene variation of PRF, MUNC13-4 and STX11 were identified.
