Automated description from the Alliance of Genome Resources
Exhibits syntaxin-1 binding activity. Involved in several processes, including protein transport; regulation of synaptic plasticity; and synaptic vesicle exocytosis. Localizes to several cellular components, including the cytoplasm; extrinsic component of cytoplasmic side of plasma membrane; and glutamatergic synapse. Predicted to colocalize with the BLOC-1 complex; vesicle; and voltage-gated potassium channel complex. Used to study attention deficit hyperactivity disorder; obesity; schizophrenia; and type 2 diabetes mellitus. Human ortholog(s) of this gene implicated in Down syndrome and congenital myasthenic syndrome 18. Orthologous to human SNAP25 (synaptosome associated protein 25).
