Previous GeneCards Identifiers for SYTL3 Gene
The protein encoded by this gene belongs to a family of peripheral membrane proteins that play a role in vesicular trafficking. This protein binds phospholipids in the presence of calcium ions. Alternatively spliced transcript variants encoding different isoforms have been found for this gene. [provided by RefSeq, Jan 2016]
