valosin-containing protein (VCP) is a member of a family that includes putative ATP-binding proteins involved in vesicle transport and fusion, 26S proteasome function, and assembly of peroxisomes. VCP, as a structural protein, is associated with clathrin, and heat-shock protein Hsc70, to form a complex. Necessary for the fragmentation of Golgi stacks during mitosis and for their reassembly after mitosis. Involved in the formation of the nuclear envelope and of the transitional endoplasmic reticulum (tER). Regulates NFKappaB pathway, which is important for metastasis of osteosarcoma. Tyrosine phosphorylation regulates its cell cycle-dependent nuclear localization. Note: This description may include information from UniProtKB.
