Gene : VMP1 Homo sapiens

Name  ? vacuole membrane protein 1 Cytological Location  17q23.1
Brief Description  vacuole membrane protein 1
Description  This gene encodes a transmembrane protein that plays a key regulatory role in the process of autophagy. The ectopic overexpression of the encoded protein in cultured cells triggers autophagy even under nutrient-rich conditions. This gene is overexpressed in pancreatitis affected acinar cells where the encoded protein mediates sequestration and degradation of potentially deleterious activated zymogen granules in a process termed, zymophagy.
