26717041 Under-expression of UVRAG is associated with colorectal cancer.
26234763 UVRAG frameshift is expressed as a truncated protein in colorectal cancer with microsatellite instability and promotes tumorigenesis. UVRAG(FS) expression renders cells more sensitive to standard chemotherapy regimen due to a DNA repair defect.
26139536 tubulation requires mTOR activity, and we identified two direct mTOR phosphorylation sites on UVRAG (S550 and S571) that activate VPS34.
25807108 HCV, by differentially inducing the expression of Rubicon and UVRAG, temporally regulated the autophagic flux to enhance its replication.
25533187 Dephosphorylation of UVRAG facilitates the lysosomal degradation of epidermal growth factor receptor (EGFR), reduces EGFR signaling, and suppresses cancer cell proliferation and tumor growth.
24956373 Beclin 1 and UVRAG confer protection against radiation-induced DNA DNA double strand breaks and may maintain centrosome stability in established tumor cells.

23200933 Akt1 may inhibit autophagy by decreasing UVRAG expression, which also sensitizes cancer cells to UV irradiation.
22542840 UVRAG promotes DNA double-strand-break repair by directly binding and activating DNA-PK in nonhomologous end joining. Disruption of UVRAG increases genetic instability and sensitivity of cells to irradiation.

20724836 Data indicate that mechanisms other than autophagy contribute to the tumorigenicity of microsatellite unstable colon carcinomas with monoallelic UVRAG mutation.
20643123 A specific sub-complex containing VPS15, VPS34, Beclin 1, UVRAG and BIF-1 regulates both receptor degradation and cytokinesis, whereas ATG14L, a PI3K-III subunit involved in autophagy, is not required.

20163458 Observational study of gene-disease association. (HuGE Navigator)
18843052 These results suggest that mammalian cells have at least two distinct class III PI3-kinase complexes, and that beclin 1 interacts distinctly with mammalian Atg14 and UVRAG in two of these complexes.
