Automated description from the Alliance of Genome Resources
Exhibits syntaxin-1 binding activity. Involved in several processes, including axon target recognition; exocytosis; and negative regulation of synaptic transmission. Localizes to several cellular components, including the glutamatergic synapse; phagocytic vesicle; and presynaptic active zone membrane. Human ortholog(s) of this gene implicated in West syndrome and early infantile epileptic encephalopathy 4. Is expressed in nervous system and sensory organ. Orthologous to human STXBP1 (syntaxin binding protein 1).
