Automated description from the Alliance of Genome Resources (Release 3.2)
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 glutamatergic synapse; phagocytic vesicle; and presynaptic active zone membrane. Is expressed in nervous system and sensory organ. Human ortholog(s) of this gene implicated in West syndrome and early infantile epileptic encephalopathy 4. Orthologous to human STXBP1 (syntaxin binding protein 1).
