FYVE and coiled-coil domain autophagy adaptor 1

ENTREZID: 79443 | Type: NA | Map: 3p21.31

OMIM: 300335

Summary Entrez
The gene encodes a Rab7 adapter protein that is implicated in the microtubule transport of autophagosomes. The encoded protein contains a RUN domain, a FYVE-type zinc finger domain, and Golgi dynamics (GOLD) domain. The encoded protein plays a role in microtubule plus end-directed transport of autophagic vesicles through interactions with the small GTPase Rab7, phosphatidylinositol-3-phosphate (PI3P), the autophagosome marker LC3, and the kinesin KIF5. Mutations in this gene are associated with inclusion body myositis (IBM) and autosomal recessive congenital cataracts (CATC2). [provided by RefSeq, Aug 2020]
