Synapotobrevins, syntaxins, and the synaptosomal-associated protein SNAP25 are the main components of a protein complex involved in the docking and/or fusion of synaptic vesicles with the presynaptic membrane. The protein encoded by this gene is a member of the vesicle-associated membrane protein (VAMP)/synaptobrevin family. Mutations in this gene are associated with autosomal dominant spastic ataxia 1. Multiple alternative splice variants have been described, but the full-length nature of some variants has not been defined. [provided by RefSeq, Jul 2014]
GeneCards Summary for VAMP1 Gene
VAMP1 (Vesicle Associated Membrane Protein 1) is a Protein Coding gene. Diseases associated with VAMP1 include Spastic Ataxia 1, Autosomal Dominant and Spastic Ataxia 1. Among its related pathways are Sertoli-Sertoli Cell Junction Dynamics and HIV Life Cycle. GO annotations related to this gene include SNARE binding and SNAP receptor activity. An important paralog of this gene is VAMP2.
