PEP3, Vps18, hVps18
Vesicle mediated protein sorting plays an important role in segregation of intracellular molecules into distinct organelles. Genetic studies in yeast have identified more than 40 vacuolar protein sorting (VPS) genes involved in vesicle transport to vacuoles. This gene encodes the human homolog of yeast class C Vps18 protein. The mammalian class C Vps proteins are predominantly associated with late endosomes/lysosomes, and like their yeast counterparts, may mediate vesicle trafficking steps in the endosome/lysosome pathway.

Bakalinsky et al., Corvallis, United States. In Appl Microbiol Biotechnol, Oct 2015
Here, we report that overexpression of PEP3 which encodes a component of the HOPS and CORVET complexes involved in vacuolar biogenesis, shortened lag phase in Saccharomyces cerevisiae exposed to acetic acid stress.
Yi et al., Chongqing, China. In Asian Pac J Cancer Prev, 2014
In this study, we investigated immune responses of cytotoxic T lymphocytes (CTLs) against TRAMP-C2 prostate cancer cells after activation by dendritic cells (DCs) loaded with TRAMP-C2 freeze-thaw antigen and/or PEP-3 peptide in vitro.
D'Entremont et al., Fredericton, Canada. In J Autism Dev Disord, 2013
The Psychoeducational Profile-3's (PEP-3) ability to estimate cognitive and language skills of 136 children (20-75 months) with autism spectrum disorders (ASDs) across a range of functioning, and the association between the PEP-3 and ASD symptomatology was examined using retrospective data.
Klumperman et al., Utrecht, Netherlands. In Nat Commun, 2012
Knockdown of hVps41 or VAMP7 resulted in the accumulation of lysosome-associated membrane protein carriers, whereas knockdown of hVps39 or hVps18 did not, indicating that the effect of hVps41 is independent of CORVET/HOPS.
Divita et al., Montpellier, France. In Methods Mol Biol, 2010
We recently described a non-covalent strategy based on short amphiphatic peptides (MPG8/PEP3) that have been successfully applied ex vivo and in vivo for the delivery of therapeutic siRNA and PNA molecules.
Fox et al., Harpenden, United Kingdom. In Theor Appl Genet, 1985
A study of variation in three peptidases (PEP-3 to -5) in a parthenogenetic S. avenae field population at Rothamsted using serial one-dimensional polyacrylamide gel electrophoresis (involving changes of gel concentration and electrophoretic run-time) increased the overall number of "allozymes" (mobility variants) detected from 10 under standard conditions (6% gels, 2 h run-time) to 22, as well as revealing putative heterozygous banding patterns under some test conditions.
