FunctionMay be required for sorting endosomal resident proteins into late multivesicular endosomes by a mechanism involving microtubules.
Tissue specificityAbundantly expressed in adult and fetal thymus, peripheral blood leukocytes, bone marrow and several regions of the adult brain.
Involvement in diseaseDefects in LYST are the cause of Chediak-Higashi syndrome (CHS) [MIM:214500]. CHS is a rare autosomal recessive disorder characterized by hypopigmentation, severe immunologic deficiency, a bleeding tendency, neurologic abnormalities, abnormal intracellular transport to and from the lysosome, and giant inclusion bodies in a variety of cell types. Most patients die at an early age unless they receive an allogeneic hematopoietic stem cell transplant (SCT).
