Peptidase C

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.

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.
Identification of candidate genes involved in marble color pattern formation in genus Salmo.
Sušnik Bajec et al., Slovenia. In Comp Biochem Physiol Part D Genomics Proteomics, 2013

hVps41 and VAMP7 function in direct TGN to late endosome transport of lysosomal membrane proteins.
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.
