Automated description from the Alliance of Genome Resources
Exhibits SNARE binding activity and calcium channel inhibitor activity. Involved in modulation of chemical synaptic transmission; secretion by cell; and vesicle docking. Localizes to several cellular components, including the cytoplasm; integral component of plasma membrane; and nuclear membrane. Predicted to colocalize with the voltage-gated potassium channel complex. Used to study disease of mental health. Human ortholog(s) of this gene implicated in Creutzfeldt-Jakob disease and Hirschsprung's disease. Orthologous to human STX1A (syntaxin 1A).
