Predicted to enable SNAP receptor activity; SNARE binding activity; and protein N-terminus binding activity. Predicted to be involved in several processes, including Golgi disassembly; Golgi vesicle transport; and regulation of Golgi organization. Predicted to act upstream of or within vesicle-mediated transport. Predicted to be located in Golgi apparatus; endoplasmic reticulum; and vesicle. Predicted to be part of SNARE complex. Predicted to be active in Golgi membrane. Is expressed in mesenchyme of metanephros and metanephros epithelium. Orthologous to human STX5 (syntaxin 5).
