Summaries for VAMP4 Gene

Entrez Gene Summary for VAMP4 Gene

  • Synaptobrevins/VAMPs, syntaxins, and the 25-kD synaptosomal-associated protein SNAP25 are the main components of a protein complex involved in the docking and/or fusion of synaptic vesicles with the presynaptic membrane. The protein encoded by this gene is a member of the vesicle-associated membrane protein (VAMP)/synaptobrevin family. This protein may play a role in trans-Golgi network-to-endosome transport.

GeneCards Summary for VAMP4 Gene

VAMP4 (Vesicle Associated Membrane Protein 4) is a Protein Coding gene. Diseases associated with VAMP4 include Mental Retardation, Enteropathy, Deafness, Peripheral Neuropathy, Ichthyosis, And Keratoderma and Human Granulocytic Anaplasmosis. Among its related pathways are Nicotine Pathway (Dopaminergic Neuron), Pharmacodynamics and Clathrin-mediated endocytosis. Gene Ontology (GO) annotations related to this gene include SNARE binding and SNAP receptor activity. An important paralog of this gene is ENSG00000263620.

UniProtKB/Swiss-Prot for VAMP4 Gene

  • Involved in the pathway that functions to remove an inhibitor (probably synaptotagmin-4) of calcium-triggered exocytosis during the maturation of secretory granules. May be a marker for this sorting pathway that is critical for remodeling the secretory response of granule.
