Automated description from the Alliance of Genome Resources (Release 3.2)
Predicted to have SNAP receptor activity and syntaxin binding activity. Involved in SNARE complex assembly; regulation of synaptic vesicle fusion to presynaptic active zone membrane; and synaptic vesicle priming. Localizes to cell surface; glutamatergic synapse; and neuromuscular junction. Is expressed in brain; cerebellum molecular layer; and ventral tegmental area. Human ortholog(s) of this gene implicated in congenital myasthenic syndrome and spastic ataxia 1. Orthologous to human VAMP1 (vesicle associated membrane protein 1).
