Specificity of vesicular transport is regulated, in part,by the interaction of a vesicle-associated membrane protein termedsynaptobrevin/VAMP with a target compartment membrane proteintermed syntaxin. These proteins, together with SNAP25(synaptosome-associated protein of 25 kDa), form a complex whichserves as a binding site for the general membrane fusion machinery.Synaptobrevin/VAMP and syntaxin are believed to be involved invesicular transport in most, if not all cells, while SNAP25 ispresent almost exclusively in the brain, suggesting that aubiquitously expressed homolog of SNAP25 exists to facilitatetransport vesicle/target membrane fusion in other tissues. Theprotein encoded by this gene is structurally and functionallysimilar to SNAP25 and binds tightly to multiple syntaxins andsynaptobrevins/VAMPs. It is an essential component of the highaffinity receptor for the general membrane fusion machinery and isan important regulator of transport vesicle docking and fusion. Twoalternative transcript variants encoding different protein isoformshave been described for this gene.
