Protein-protein Interaction (2)

Gene RIF (17)

25667979 Results show the crystal structure of the complex between ALG-2 and a peptide of Sec31A and found that the peptide binds to the third hydrophobic pocket (Pocket 3) and that ALG-2 recognizing 2 types of motifs at different hydrophobic surfaces of Sec31A.
25534348 Lack of ALG-2, ALIX or Vps4B each prevents shedding, and repair of the injured cell membrane
25006245 ALG-2/Sec31A interactions were not required for the localization of Sec31A to ER exit sites per se but appeared to acutely regulate the stability and trafficking of the cargo receptor p24 and the distribution of the vesicle tether protein p115
24069399 ALG-2 attenuates COPII budding in vitro and stabilizes the Sec23/Sec31A complex.
23924735 The results of in vitro binding assays using purified recombinant proteins indicated that ALG-2 functions as a Ca(2)-dependent adaptor protein that bridges ALIX and ESCRT-I to form a ternary complex
23404334 We identify ALG14 and ALG2 as novel genes in which mutations cause a congenital myasthenic syndrome
22437941 This is the first report showing interaction of ALG-2 with a P-body component (PATL1).PATL1 as well as DCP1A, a well-known P-body marker, co-localized with a subset of ALG-2.
20834162 the alg2 binding site is one of the key determinants of the retention kinetics of Sec31A at endoplasmic reticulum exit sites
20691033 inability of the two-residue shorter ALG-2 isoform to bind Alix
20571937 found that targeting Requiem and Alg-2 did not result in extended culture viability, but resulted in an increase in maximum viable cell numbers and cumulative IVCD under fed-batch conditions
19520058 Ca2+-loaded ALG-2 bridges Alix and TSG101 as an adaptor protein.
19383317 analysed the expression of ALG-2 in 7371 tumor tissue samples of various origin; most notably, ALG-2 was upregulated in mesenchymal tumors.
19013425 These results indicate that ALG-2 has an anti-apoptotic function in HeLa cells by facilitating the passage through checkpoints in the G2/M cell cycle phase.
18936101 Alix and ALG-2 are new actors of the TNF-R1 pathway
17889823 ALG-2 binding to Scotin is strictly calcium dependent, indicating a role of this interaction in calcium signaling pathways
16004603 The expression and transport of ALG-2 in association with TSG101 and Vps4B are reported.
14999017 The ALG2 binding site is necessary for the punctate distribution of the carboxyl-terminal proline-rich region of Alix in HeLa cells.
