VPS33B interacting protein, apical-basolateral polarity regulator, spe-39 homolog

The VIPAS39 gene encodes a protein involved in the sorting of lysosomal proteins. Mutations in this gene cause autosomal recessive ARCS2, a syndrome characterized by arthrogryposis, renal dysfunction, and cholestasis.
