The HOPS complex serves as a tethering complex with GEF activity for Ypt7p in yeast to regulate late endosomal membrane maturation. While the role of HOPS complex is well established in yeast cells, its functional and mechanistic aspects in mammalian cells are less well defined. In this study, we report that RILP, a downstream effector of Rab7, interacts(More)
Small GTPase Rab36 is homologous to Rab34 with 56% amino acid sequence identity. Rab34 was characterized as a Golgi-associated Rab protein and regulates lysosomal positioning through interaction with RILP; however, the properties and functions of Rab36 have not been investigated. To investigate Rab36, we constructed EGFP-Rab36 wild type, the active(More)
MicroRNAs (miRNAs) are strongly implicated in various cancers, including prostate cancer. Recently, microRNA-455-3p (miR-455-3p) has been shown to be aberrantly expressed in many tumor tissues, but its functions in tumorigenesis remain unknown. In this study, we investigated the role of miR-455-3p in prostate cancer. We found that miR-455-3p is markedly(More)
We did not cite a related study which demonstrated that RILP facilitates membrane recruitment of tethering HOPS complex and p150glued subunit of dynein complex, which is regulated by cholesterol sensor ORP1L (Reference 1). In that investigation, RILP interacts with HOPS complex and recruits subunits of HOPS complex to late endosomal membrane, which is(More)
