Summaries for YKT6 Gene

Entrez Gene Summary for YKT6 Gene

  • This gene product is one of the SNARE recognition molecules implicated in vesicular transport between secretory compartments. It is a membrane associated, isoprenylated protein that functions at the endoplasmic reticulum-Golgi transport step. This protein is highly conserved from yeast to human and can functionally complement the loss of the yeast homolog in the yeast secretory pathway. [provided by RefSeq, Jul 2008]

GeneCards Summary for YKT6 Gene

YKT6 (YKT6 V-SNARE Homolog (S. Cerevisiae)) is a Protein Coding gene. Among its related pathways are Delta508-CFTR traffic / ER-to-Golgi in CF and Nicotine Pathway (Dopaminergic Neuron), Pharmacodynamics. GO annotations related to this gene include SNAP receptor activity and protein-cysteine S-palmitoyltransferase activity.

UniProtKB/Swiss-Prot for YKT6 Gene

  • Vesicular soluble NSF attachment protein receptor (v-SNARE) mediating vesicle docking and fusion to a specific acceptor cellular compartment.
