    ..Membrane-associated Vta1p co-purified with Vps60p, suggesting that Vta1p is a class E Vps protein that interacts with Vps60p on a prevacuolar compartment.

    ..mechanisms of Vps4 stimulation are described: Vps2 can directly stimulate Vps4 via its MIT domain, whereas Vps60 stimulates via Vta1. Moreover, Did2 can stimulate Vps4 by both mechanisms in distinct contexts...

    ..In a screen for mutants that affect this process, a vacuolar protein sorting gene, MOS10 (VPS60), and a gene encoding an alpha subunit of the proteasome core, PRE9, were isolated...

    ..Furthermore, Snf7 turned out to be dispensable for SUC2 expression in an NRG1 deletion background. Thus, the effects of Snf7 on SUC2 expression can be completely accounted for by its effect on Nrg1 levels. ..
