|Function||Probable core component of the endosomal sorting required for transport complex III (ESCRT-III) which is involved in multivesicular bodies (MVBs) formation and sorting of endosomal cargo proteins into MVBs. MVBs contain intraluminal vesicles (ILVs) that are generated by invagination and scission from the limiting membrane of the endosome and mostly are delivered to lysosomes enabling degradation of membrane proteins, such as stimulated growth factor receptors, lysosomal enzymes and lipids. The MVB pathway appears to require the sequential function of ESCRT-O, -I,-II and -III complexes. ESCRT-III proteins mostly dissociate from the invaginating membrane before the ILV is released. The ESCRT machinery also functions in topologically equivalent membrane fission events, such as the terminal stages of cytokinesis and the budding of enveloped viruses (HIV-1 and other lentiviruses). ESCRT-III proteins are believed to mediate the necessary vesicle extrusion and/or membrane fission activities, possibly in conjunction with the AAA ATPase VPS4. In the ESCRT-III complex, it probably serves as an acceptor for the ESCRT-II complex on endosomal membranes.|

CHMP6 belongs to the chromatin-modifying protein/chargedmultivesicular body protein (CHMP) family. These proteins arecomponents of ESCRT-III (endosomal sorting complex required fortransport III), a complex involved in degradation of surfacereceptor proteins and formation of endocytic multivesicular bodies(MVBs). Some CHMPs have both nuclear and cytoplasmic/vesiculardistributions, and one such CHMP, CHMP1A (MIM 164010), is requiredfor both MVB formation and regulation of cell cycle progression(Tsang et al., 2006 [PubMed 16730941]).
