    ..The genes MON1 and YPT7 also interact genetically with PEP12. These results suggest that the Ccz1p-Mon1p-Ypt7p complex is involved in fusion of transport vesicles to multiple target membranes in yeast cells. ..

    ..It is encoded by an extended version of ORF YAL014c, and since its SNARE motif is related to mammalian syntaxin 8 we term the gene SYN8. Syn8p is in endosomes...

    ..Thus, our current study establishes that an appropriate assembly of Qabc-SNAREs is crucial for regulating fusion specificity, whereas R-SNARE itself has little contribution to specificity. ..

    ..Together our data suggest that Ppz1p and Ppz2p may have overlapping functions with Glc7p and that all three phosphatases may act through common regulatory proteins. ..

    ..This provides the necessary flexibility to bind three SNAREs with little sequence homology but maintains the specificity of the interaction. ..

    ..In addition, this study indicates that the two-hybrid system offers a promising approach to understanding the multiple roles and interactions of PP1 in cellular regulation. ..

    ..As different transport steps were affected our data demonstrate the importance of a folded Vti1p H(abc) domain for transport. ..
