High impact information on SNX6

  • Of the type II receptors, SNX6 was found to interact strongly with ActRIIB and more moderately with wild type and kinase-defective mutants of TbetaRII [1].
  • Conversely, SNX6 behaved similarly to the other SNX proteins in its interactions with receptor tyrosine kinases [1].
  • Using this screen, we identified two proteins, SNX5 and SNX6, that, when suppressed, induced a phenotype similar to that observed upon suppression of known retromer components [2].
  • Such data suggest that SNX1 and SNX6 exist in a stable, endosomally associated complex that is required for retromer-mediated retrieval of the cation-independent mannose-6-phosphate receptor [2].
  • This was confirmed by measurements of purified plasma membrane Na,K-ATPase activity after incubation with recombinant TCTP and SNX6 [3].
