Lysosomal-associated transmembrane protein 4B - Q86VI4 (LAP4B_HUMAN)


Protein Feature View of PDB entries mapped to a UniProtKB sequence  

Required for optimal lysosomal function (PubMed:21224396). Blocks EGF-stimulated EGFR intraluminal sorting and degradation. Conversely by binding with the phosphatidylinositol 4,5-bisphosphate, regulates its PIP5K1C interaction, inhibits HGS ubiquitination and relieves LAPTM4B inhibition of EGFR degradation (PubMed:25588945). Recruits SLC3A2 and SLC7A5 (the Leu transporter) to the lysosome, promoting entry of leucine and other essential amino acid (EAA) into the lysosome, stimulating activation of proton-transporting vacuolar (V)-ATPase protein pump (V-ATPase) and hence mTORC1 activation (PubMed:25998567). Plays a role as negative regulator of TGFB1 production in regulatory T cells (PubMed:26126825). Binds ceramide and facilitates its exit from late endosome in order to control cell death pathways (PubMed:26280656). UniProt

Subunit Structure
Homooligomer; upon reaching the lysosomes (PubMed:21224396). Interacts with MCOLN1 (PubMed:21224396). Interacts with NEDD4; may play a role in the lysosomal sorting of LAPTM4B; enhances HGS association with NEDD4; mediates inhibition of EGFR degradation (PubMed:22096579, PubMed:25588945). Interacts with PIP5K1C; promotes SNX5 association with LAPTM4B; kinase activity of PIP5K1C is required; interaction is regulated by phosphatidylinositol 4,5-bisphosphate generated by PIP5K1C (PubMed:25588945). Interacts with HGS; promotes HGS ubiquitination (PubMed:25588945). Interacts with SNX5 (PubMed:25588945). Interacts with SLC3A2 AND SLC7A5; recruits SLC3A2 and SLC7A5 to lysosomes to promote leucine uptake into these organelles and is required for mTORC1 activation (PubMed:25998567). Interacts with LRRC32; decreases TGFB1 production in regulatory T cells (PubMed:26126825). Interacts with BECN1; competes with EGFR for LAPTM4B binding; regulates EGFR activity (PubMed:28479384). Interacts with EGFR; positively correlates with EGFR activation (PubMed:28479384). UniProt

Data origin/color codes
The vertical color bar on the left side indicates data provenance.
Data in green originates from UniProtKB  
Variation data (sourced from UniProt) shows non-genetic variation from the ExPASy   and dbSNP   websites.
Data in yellow originates from Pfam  , by interacting with the HMMER3 web site  
Data in purple originates from Phosphosite  .
Data in orange originates from the SCOP   (version 1.75) and SCOPe   (version 2.04) classifications.
Data in grey has been calculated using BioJava  . Protein disorder predictions are based on JRONN (Troshin, P. and Barton, G. J. unpublished), a Java implementation of RONN  
  • Red: potentially disorderd region
  • Blue: probably ordered region.
Hydropathy has been calculated using a sliding window of 15 residues and summing up scores from standard hydrophobicity tables.
  • Red: hydrophobic
  • Blue: hydrophilic.
Data in lilac represent the genomic exon structure projected onto the UniProt sequence.
Data in blue originates from PDB
  • Secstruc: Secondary structure projected from representative PDB entries onto the UniProt sequence.
Sequence Mismatches It is now possible to see information about expression tags, cloning artifacts, and many other details related to sequence mismatches.
Icons represent a number of different sequence modifications that can be observed in PDB files. For example the 'T' icon T represents expression tags that have been added to the sequence. The 'E' icon E represents an engineered mutation. However, besides these two, there are many other icons. For more information about the meaning and exact position of a sequence modification, move the cursor over the icon.
