The gene PLEKHM1 (pleckstrin homology and RUN domain containing M1) is mapped to human chromosome 17q21.31. The encoded protein is widely expressed. The protein localizes in the cytoplasm and late endosomal/lysosomal compartments. PLEKHM1 has a RH (rubicon homologous) domain, two PH (pleckstrin homology) domains and a LIR (LC3 interaction region).
PLEKHM1 antibody was raised against an 18 amino acid peptide from near the amino terminus of human PLEKHM1.
PLEKHM1 (pleckstrin homology and RUN domain containing M1) is involved in the end stages of endocytic and autophagy pathways. Here, it interacts with RAB7 (member of RAS oncogene family), the HOPS (homotypic fusion and vacuole protein sorting) complex and ATG8 (autophagy-related protein 8) proteins. It plays an important role in autophagosome-lysosome fusion and endosome and autophagosome maturation. PLEKHM1 also participates in osteoclast function and bone resorption. In presence of Salmonella enterica Typhimurium, the PLEKHM1-RAB7-HOPS complex targets the Salmonella effector protein SifA (Salmonella-induced filament protein A) and controls vacuoles consisting of Salmonella.
