Gene: SYT8 (synaptotagmin 8) Homo sapiens
Symbol: SYT8
Name: synaptotagmin 8
Description: Predicted to have several functions, including calcium ion binding activity; phospholipid binding activity; and syntaxin binding activity. Predicted to be involved in cellular response to calcium ion; regulation of secretion by cell; and synaptic vesicle cycle. Predicted to localize to axon; plasma membrane; and secretory vesicle.
Type: protein-coding
RefSeq Status: REVIEWED
