Entrez Gene Summary for VAMP4 Gene

  • Synaptobrevins/VAMPs, syntaxins, and the 25-kD 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. This protein may play a role in trans-Golgi network-to-endosome transport.

GeneCards Summary for VAMP4 Gene

VAMP4 (Vesicle-Associated Membrane Protein 4) is a Protein Coding gene. Diseases associated with VAMP4 include human granulocytic anaplasmosis. Among its related pathways are Delta508-CFTR traffic / ER-to-Golgi in CF and Nicotine Pathway (Dopaminergic Neuron), Pharmacodynamics. An important paralog of this gene is VAMP3.

UniProtKB/Swiss-Prot for VAMP4 Gene

  • Involved in the pathway that functions to remove an inhibitor (probably synaptotagmin-4) of calcium-triggered exocytosis during the maturation of secretory granules. May be a marker for this sorting pathway that is critical for remodeling the secretory response of granule
