STX3 gene

syntaxin 3

The information on this page was automatically extracted from online scientific databases.

From NCBI Gene:

The gene is a member of the syntaxin family. The encoded protein is targeted to the apical membrane of epithelial cells where it forms clusters and is important in establishing and maintaining polarity necessary for protein trafficking involving vesicle fusion and exocytosis. Alternative splicing results in multiple transcript variants. [provided by RefSeq, May 2010]

From UniProt:

Potentially involved in docking of synaptic vesicles at presynaptic active zones.
