    text concentrated on insulin-positive vesicles
    basic FUNCTION
  • involved in the docking of exocystic vesicles with fusions site on the plasma membrane
  • EXOC3/EXOC4 and septin complexes likely play an important role in trafficking vesicles and organizing proteins at the plasma membrane of neurons
  • EXOC3/EXOC4 complex, or exocyst, a multisubunit complex facilitating post-Golgi targeting of distinct subclasses of secretory vesicles, has been identified as a bona fide RALA effector complex
  • exocyst complex EXOC3/EXOC4, serves to selectively regulate the docking of insulin-containing vesicles at sites of release close to the plasma membrane )
  • has specific functions in migration, adhesion, and cell differentiation
  • plays specific roles in cell-cell adhesion and cell cycle arrest
  • CELLULAR PROCESS
    PHYSIOLOGICAL PROCESS exocytosis transport
    text protein transport
    PATHWAY
    metabolism
    signaling
    a component
  • component of the exocyst complex composed of SEC3, SEC5, SEC6, SEC8, SEC10, SEC15, EXO70 and EXO84
  • INTERACTION
    DNA
    RNA
    small molecule
    protein
  • interacting with EXOC7 (assembles a multiprotein complex that includes EXOC3 and EXOC4)
  • EXOC3 regulates cytoplasmic translocation of CDKN1B through CDKN1B phosphorylation at Thr157, thereby promoting CDKN1B degradation in the cytoplasm via interaction with COPS5 and SIAH1 and suppressing cell cycle progression
  • EXOC3 regulates NFKB1 transcriptional activity via the control of the phosphorylation of NFKBIA, RPS6KA2, and ERK
  • EXOC3 regulated BCL2 at the mRNA level and the binding affinity of F-box and WD repeat domain containing 7 and MCL1, thereby controlling MCL1 at the protein level
  • EXOC3 is involved in the enhancement of cell migration and suppression of apoptosis through the activation of HSPB1, HSPB2 or MAPK14 phosphorylation
