Immunoprecipitation of STX1A transfected lysate using anti-STX1A MaxPab rabbit polyclonal antibody and Protein A Magnetic Bead (U0007), and immunoblotted with STX1A purified MaxPab mouse polyclonal antibody (B01P) (H00006804-B01P).
Synaptic vesicles store neurotransmitters that are released during calcium-regulated exocytosis. The specificity of neurotransmitter release requires the localization of both synaptic vesicles and calcium channels to the presynaptic active zone. Syntaxins function in this vesicle fusion process. Syntaxins also serve as a substrate for botulinum neurotoxin type C, a metalloprotease that blocks exocytosis and has high affinity for a molecular complex that includes the alpha-latrotoxin receptor (MIM 600565) which produces explosive exocytosis (Zhang et al., 1995 [PubMed 7622072]).[supplied by OMIM
