VCP valosin containing protein

Also known as: p97; TERA; ALS14; CDC48; CMT2Y; IBMPFD; HEL-220; IBMPFD1; HEL-S-70

Summary

The protein encoded by this gene is a member of a family that includes putative ATP-binding proteins involved in vesicle transport and fusion, 26S proteasome function, and assembly of peroxisomes. This protein, as a structural protein, is associated with clathrin, and heat-shock protein Hsc70, to form a complex. It has been implicated in a number of cellular events that are regulated during mitosis, including homotypic membrane fusion, spindle pole body function, and ubiquitin-dependent protein degradation.
