VCP (valosin-containing protein or transitional endo-plasmic reticulum ATPase) is a hexameric ATPase. Like many other members of the AAA (ATPases associated with diverse cellular activities) family, it uses the energy of ATP hydrolysis to structurally remodel client molecules. VCP facilitates the degradation of polyubiquitylated substrates in the proteasome. VCP/p97 has also been linked to various membrane trafficking processes, including Golgi reassembly following mitosis.
