Summaries for STX7 Gene

Entrez Gene Summary for STX7 Gene

  • The protein encoded by this gene is a syntaxin family membrane receptor involved in vesicle transport. The encoded protein binds alpha-SNAP, an important regulator of transport vesicle fusion. Along with syntaxin 13, this protein plays a role in the ordered fusion of endosomes and lysosomes with the phagosome. [provided by RefSeq, May 2016]

GeneCards Summary for STX7 Gene

STX7 (Syntaxin 7) is a Protein Coding gene. Diseases associated with STX7 include Leukodystrophy, Hypomyelinating, 6 and Hemophagocytic Lymphohistiocytosis, Familial, 4. Among its related pathways are Nicotine Pathway (Dopaminergic Neuron), Pharmacodynamics and Phagosome. Gene Ontology (GO) annotations related to this gene include syntaxin binding and SNAP receptor activity. An important paralog of this gene is STX12.

UniProtKB/Swiss-Prot for STX7 Gene

  • May be involved in protein trafficking from the plasma membrane to the early endosome (EE) as well as in homotypic fusion of endocytic organelles. Mediates the endocytic trafficking from early endosomes to late endosomes and lysosomes.
