  1. Weber M, Chernov K, Turakainen H, Wohlfahrt G, Pajunen M, Savilahti H, et al. Mso1p regulates membrane fusion through interactions with the putative N-peptide-binding area in Sec1p domain 1. Mol Biol Cell. 2010;21:1362-74 pubmed publisher
    ..We show that the putative N-peptide binding area in Sec1p domain 1 is important for Mso1p binding, and that Mso1p can interact with Sso1p and Sso2p. Our results suggest that Mso1p mimics N-peptide binding to facilitate membrane fusion. ..

    ..Furthermore, our data suggest that a general mode of interaction, consisting of a lipid-binding protein, a Rab family GTPase, and a Sec1/Munc18 family protein, is important in all SNARE-mediated membrane fusion events. ..
