Valocin-containing protein (VCP) is a member of a family of proteins that include putative ATP-binding proteins involved in vesicle transport and fusion, 26S proteasome function, and assembly of peroxisomes. VCP associates with clathrin and heat-shock protein Hsc70 to form a complex that functions as a chaperon to unfold and transport proteins to different cellular compartments. Diseases associated with VCP include inclusion body myopathy with early-onset Paget's disease, and frontotemporal dementia 1 and amyotrophic lateral sclerosis 14, with or without frontotemporal dementia.Product Details
