p47, also known as NSFL1C, UBX1, UBXD10 or UBXN2C, is a 370 amino acid protein that localizes to both the nucleus and the golgi apparatus (specifically to golgi stacks) and contains one SEP domain and one UBX domain. Functioning as part of a ternary complex with VCP (a protein involved in the heterotypic fusion of transport vesicles with their target membranes) and Syntaxin 5, p47 interacts with and reduces the ATPase activity of VCP and is required for the fragmentation of golgi stacks during mitosis and for subsequent reassembly of golgi stacks after mitosis. p47 is subject to phosphorylation during mitosis, which inhibits p47-golgi interaction and is, therefore, required for proper golgi stack formation and cisternal regrowth. Human p47 shares 89% sequence identity with its mouse counterpart, suggesting a conserved role between species. Multiple isoforms of p47 exist due to alternative splicing events.
