26350970 HIV-1 Nef-mediated actin rearrangement is inhibited by EXOC4
26283729 Sec8 regulates histone-modifying proteins ATF2 and RNF20.
25725287 Sec8 knockdown in HSC3 cells resulted in reduced expressions of PAK1 and PAK2 by upregulating Pirh2 and Siah1 expression, which inhibited the ERK or p38 MAPK signalling pathway and cytokeratin8 phosphorylation and cell migration.
25244576 knockdown of Sec8 enhances the binding of JIP4 to MAPK kinase 4, thereby decreasing the phosphorylation of MAPK kinase 4, JNK, and p38.
23207790 High Sec8 expression is associated with progression of oral squamous-cell carcinoma by secretion of matrix metalloproteinases.
23169490 Exome sequencing revealed a likely pathogenic mutation in three novel candidate MKS disease genes-C5orf42, EVC2 and SEC8 (also known as EXOC4), which encodes an exocyst protein with an established role in ciliogenesis
22534017 HIV-1 Nef-mediated actin rearrangement is inhibited by EXOC4

18987618 Observational study and genome-wide association study of gene-disease association. (HuGE Navigator)
18541705 The exocyst subunits Sec3 and Sec8 interact with the polarity protein IQGAP1 and that this interaction is triggered by active Cdc42 and RhoA, which are essential for matrix degradation.
18498660 EXOC4 is involved in insulin-stimulated glucose transport and may be a candidate for an association with type 2 diabetes.
