Automated description from the Alliance of Genome Resources (Release 3.1.1)
Exhibits syntaxin-1 binding activity. Involved in several processes, including neurotransmitter receptor transport; regulation of synaptic plasticity; and synaptic vesicle exocytosis. Localizes to several cellular components, including extrinsic component of cytoplasmic side of plasma membrane; synaptobrevin 2-SNAP-25-syntaxin-1a-complexin I complex; and trans-Golgi network. Predicted to colocalize with BLOC-1 complex; vesicle; and voltage-gated potassium channel complex. Is expressed in adrenal gland; jaw; nervous system; and sensory organ. 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).
