Summaries for STX11 Gene

Entrez Gene Summary for STX11 Gene

  • This gene encodes a member of the syntaxin family. Syntaxins have been implicated in the targeting and fusion of intracellular transport vesicles. This family member may regulate protein transport among late endosomes and the trans-Golgi network. Mutations in this gene have been associated with familial hemophagocytic lymphohistiocytosis. [provided by RefSeq, Jul 2008]

GeneCards Summary for STX11 Gene

STX11 (Syntaxin 11) is a Protein Coding gene. Diseases associated with STX11 include Hemophagocytic Lymphohistiocytosis, Familial, 4 and Hemophagocytic Lymphohistiocytosis. Among its related pathways are Nicotine Pathway (Dopaminergic Neuron), Pharmacodynamics. Gene Ontology (GO) annotations related to this gene include SNARE binding and SNAP receptor activity. An important paralog of this gene is STX19.
