|Function||Proposed to act as a multivalent adapter protein that regulates Rab7-dependent and HOPS complex-dependent fusion events in the endolysosomal system and couples autophagic and the endocytic trafficking pathways. Required for late stages of endolysosomal maturation, facilitating both endocytosis-mediated degradation of growth factor receptors and autophagosome clearance. Seems to be involved in the terminal maturation of autophagosomes and to mediate autophagosome-lysosome fusion (PubMed:25498145). Involved in vesicular transport in the osteoclast (By similarity). May be involved in negative regulation of endocytic transport from early endosome to late endosome/lysosome implicating its association with Rab7 (PubMed:20943950). May have a role in sialyl-lex-mediated transduction of apoptotic signals (PubMed:12820725). In case of infection contributes to Salmonella typhimurium pathogenesis by supporting the integrity of the Salmonella-containing vacuole (SCV) probably in concert with the HOPS complex and Rab7 (PubMed:25500191).|
|Cellular Location||Cytoplasm. Endosome membrane. Lysosome. Lysosome membrane. Note=Localizes to the external membrane of autolysosomes (PubMed:25498145). In case of infection colocalizes with Salmonella typhimurium sifA in proximity of Salmonella-containing vacuole (SCV) (PubMed:25500191)|
|Tissue Location||Expressed in placenta, liver, prostate, thymus, spleen, ovary, colon, colon carcinoma and peripheral blood lymphocytes (PBL). Weakly expressed in brain, lung, kidney, and testis. No expression in heart, skeletal muscle, pancreas and small intestine. Predominantly expressed in the breast carcinoma cell line MCF-7.|

PLEKHM1 Antibody: PLEKHM1 is a member of the M family of Pleckstrin homolog domain-containing proteins, a group of proteins containing a RUN domain, two pleckstrin homology domains, and a cysteine-rich domain. It was identified through segregation analysis as a cause of osteopetrosis in humans. PLEKHM1 co-localizes with Rab7 to late endosomal/lysosomal vesicles in HEK293 and osteoclast-like cells, with this co-localization dependent on the prenylation of Rab7. Monocytes from a patient homozygous for a mutated form of PLEKHM1differentiated into osteoclasts normally, but failed to form ruffled borders and showed little evidence of bone resorbtion when cultured on dentine discs. Another mutation of PLEKHM1 impaired vesicular acidification and increased TRACP secretion in osteoclasts, suggesting that PLEKHM1 has critical roles in endosomal maturation and may be important in osteoclast-osteoblast cross-talk.
