External Ids for SNX17 Gene
This gene encodes a member of the sorting nexin family. Members of this family contain a phox (PX) domain, which is a phosphoinositide binding domain, and are involved in intracellular trafficking. This protein does not contain a coiled coil region, like some family members, but contains a B41 domain. This protein interacts with the cytoplasmic domain of P-selectin, and may function in the intracellular trafficking of P-selectin. Alternative splicing results in multiple transcript variants encoding different isoforms. [provided by RefSeq, May 2012]

UniProtKB/Swiss-Prot for SNX17 Gene
Critical regulator of endosomal recycling of numerous receptors, channels, and other transmembrane proteins. Binds to NPxY sequences in the cytoplasmic tails of target cargos. Plays a role in the sorting of endocytosed LRP1 and APP, and prevents their degradation. Required for maintenance of normal cell surface levels of APP and LRP1. Recycles internalized integrins ITGB1, ITGB5 and their associated alpha subunits, preventing them from lysosomal degradation. Interacts with membranes containing phosphatidylinositol 3-phosphate (PtdIns(3P)).
