UniProtKB/Swiss-Prot Summary for SYT3 Gene
Ca(2+) sensor involved in Ca(2+)-dependent exocytosis of secretory vesicles through Ca(2+) and phospholipid binding to the C2 domain. Ca(2+) induces binding of the C2-domains to phospholipid membranes and to assembled SNARE-complexes; both actions contribute to triggering exocytosis (By similarity). Plays a role in dendrite formation by melanocytes (PubMed:23999003).
