SNAP91 (Synaptosome Associated Protein 91) is a Protein Coding gene. Diseases associated with SNAP91 include Cataract 8, Multiple Types. Among its related pathways are Vesicle-mediated transport and Clathrin-mediated endocytosis. Gene Ontology (GO) annotations related to this gene include protein kinase binding and clathrin binding. An important paralog of this gene is PICALM.
UniProtKB/Swiss-Prot for SNAP91 Gene
Adaptins are components of the adapter complexes which link clathrin to receptors in coated vesicles. Clathrin-associated protein complexes are believed to interact with the cytoplasmic tails of membrane proteins, leading to their selection and concentration. Binding of AP180 to clathrin triskelia induces their assembly into 60-70 nm coats (By similarity).
