26812496 The VAPB and its interacting partners cooperatively regulate protein trafficking through the ERGIC by modulating PtdIns4P levels.
26784321 Study characterizes the human VAPB-HCV NS5B interaction and reveals that NS5B C-linker is intrinsically disordered in solution but capable of binding the human VAPB-MSP domain which overlaps with those for binding HCV NS5A and human Eph receptors.
26740627 VAPB inhibited the degradation of DeltaF508-CFTR in the ER through interactions with the RMA1-Derlin-BAP31-VCP pathway.
26490117 Our work revealed that VAP-A/B knockdown impaired the processing and secretion of PAUF, which is one of the cargo proteins of carriers of the trans-Golgi network to the cell surface.
26362257 Heterozygous P56S Vapb knock-in mice show mild age-dependent defects in motor behaviors as characteristic features of the disease. The homozygous P56S Vapb knock-in mice show more severe defects compared with heterozygous mice reflecting the dominant and dose-dependent effects of P56S mutation.
25826266 Collectively, these results not only lead to a better understanding of hVAPB function but also point to potentially relevant targets for therapeutic intervention.
25824044 P56S-VAPB was found to suppress adipocyte differentiation by promoting the activation of the ATF4-CHOP pathway
25612670 results suggest that the binding of vesicle-associated membrane protein-associated protein B(VAP-B) to Rab3 GTPase activating protein 1(RAB3GAP1) is implicated in the regulation of nuclear envelope formation through ER-Golgi intermediate compartment
24885147 The repertoire of VAPB interactors is more diverse than previously anticipated and link VAPB to the function of ATPase complexes such as p97/FAF1 and ASNA1/transmembrane-domain recognition complex.
24212516 genetic screening for this mutation should be performed in all adult patients with lower motor neuron disease, regardless of family history because of the rarity of this disease, physicians often do not suspect it, and many cases may be missed in Brazil.
