Automated description from the Alliance of Genome Resources (Release 3.0)
Exhibits SNARE binding activity; identical protein binding activity; and phospholipid binding activity. Involved in calcium-dependent activation of synaptic vesicle fusion and regulation of calcium ion-dependent exocytosis. Localizes to dense core granule; hippocampal mossy fiber to CA3 synapse; and integral component of synaptic vesicle membrane. Is expressed in several structures, including adrenal gland; gonad; liver; nervous system; and spleen. Orthologous to human SYT9 (synaptotagmin 9).
