GeneCards Summary for SV2C Gene
SV2C (Synaptic Vesicle Glycoprotein 2C) is a Protein Coding gene. Diseases associated with SV2C include Alcohol-Related Birth Defect and Foodborne Botulism. Among its related pathways are HIV Life Cycle and Uptake and actions of bacterial toxins. Gene Ontology (GO) annotations related to this gene include transporter activity and transmembrane transporter activity. An important paralog of this gene is SV2A.
UniProtKB/Swiss-Prot Summary for SV2C Gene
Plays a role in the control of regulated secretion in neural and endocrine cells, enhancing selectively low-frequency neurotransmission. Positively regulates vesicle fusion by maintaining the readily releasable pool of secretory vesicles.
(Microbial infection) Receptor for C.botulinum neurotoxin type A (BoNT/A, botA); the toxin probably binds via extracellular loop 4 (PubMed:27313224). Recognition by BoNT/A relies on both protein-protein and protein-N-glycosylation; glycosylation of Asn-559 increases its affinity for BoNT/A (PubMed:27313224). Also serves as a receptor for the closely related C.botulinum neurotoxin type A2; glycosylation is not essential but enhances the interaction (PubMed:29649119).
(Microbial infection) Possible receptor for C.botulinum neurotoxin type D (BoNT/D, botD); note that type D does not usually infect humans.
