Red List (low evidence)

Evidence Summary from Illumina curation team: VPS33A is a member of the Sec1/Munc18-related (SM) protein family and a core component of the class C core vacuole/endosome tethering (CORVET) and the homotypic fusion and protein sorting (HOPS) complexes (Vasilev et al. 2020). Both complexes are heterohexamers and share four subunits. VPS33A, VPS11, VPS16 and VPS18, involved in endolysosomal pathway. Deficiency of VPS33A was shown to affect susceptibility to certain viruses in cell culture, including Ebola and Marburg viruses (Carette et al. 2011), however no human studies confirming this association were identified.
