The Vps13 Family of Lipid Transporters and Its Role at Membrane Contact Sites
Int J Mol Sci. 2021 Mar 12;22(6):2905. doi: 10.3390/ijms22062905.ABSTRACTThe conserved VPS13 proteins constitute a new family of lipid transporters at membrane contact sites. These large proteins are suspected to bridge membranes and form a direct channel for lipid transport between organelles. Mutations in the 4 human homologs (VPS13A-D) are associated with a number of neurological disorders, but little is known ... read more
