SynNSyntaxin N-terminal domain
|SMART accession number:||SM00503|
|Description:||Three-helix domain that (in Sso1p) slows the rate of its reaction with the SNAP-25 homologue Sec9p|
|Interpro abstract (IPR006011):|
Syntaxins A and B are nervous system-specific proteins implicated in the docking of synaptic vesicles with the presynaptic plasma membrane. Syntaxins are a family of receptors for intracellular transport vesicles. Each target membrane may be identified by a specific member of the syntaxin family [(PUBMED:7690687)]. Members of the syntaxin family [(PUBMED:8493722), (PUBMED:8490959)] have a size ranging from 30 Kd to 40 Kd; a C-terminal extremity which is highly hydrophobic and anchors the protein on the cytoplasmic surface of cellular membranes; a central, well conserved region, which seems to be in a coiled-coil conformation.
