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 Toxicity of botulinum toxin type F (BoNT/F) 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 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 (By similarity).
