GeneCards Summary for NSF Gene
NSF (N-Ethylmaleimide Sensitive Factor, Vesicle Fusing ATPase) is a Protein Coding gene. Diseases associated with NSF include Tetanus and Type 1 Diabetes Mellitus 13. Among its related pathways are Glutamate Binding, Activation of AMPA Receptors and Synaptic Plasticity and Retrograde transport at the Trans-Golgi-Network. Gene Ontology (GO) annotations related to this gene include protein kinase binding.
UniProtKB/Swiss-Prot Summary for NSF Gene
Required for vesicle-mediated transport. Catalyzes the fusion of transport vesicles within the Golgi cisternae. Is also required for transport from the endoplasmic reticulum to the Golgi stack. Seems to function as a fusion protein required for the delivery of cargo proteins to all compartments of the Golgi stack independent of vesicle origin. Interaction with AMPAR subunit GRIA2 leads to influence GRIA2 membrane cycling (By similarity).
