Gene: Vamp2 (vesicle-associated membrane protein 2) Rattus norvegicus
Symbol: Vamp2
Name: vesicle-associated membrane protein 2
Description: Exhibits several functions, including calcium-dependent protein binding activity, identical protein binding activity, and ion channel binding activity; involved in several processes, including SNARE complex assembly, regulation of delayed rectifier potassium channel activity, and secretion by cell; localizes to several cellular components, including the cytoplasm, intracellular organelle, and neuron projection terminus; colocalizes with the voltage-gated potassium channel complex; orthologous to human VAMP2 (vesicle associated membrane protein 2); PARTICIPATES IN insulin responsive facilitative sugar transporter mediated glucose transport pathway; insulin secretion pathway; vasopressin signaling pathway; INTERACTS WITH 1,1-bis(2-aminoethyl)-2-hydroxy-3-oxotriazane; 2,2',5,5'-tetrachlorobiphenyl; 2,3,7,8-tetrachlorodibenzodioxine.
Type: protein-coding
Also known as: RATVAMPB; RATVAMPIR; SYB; Syb2; synaptobrevin 2; Synaptobrevin 2 (vesicle-associated membrane protein VAMP-2); synaptobrevin-2; VAMP-2; Vesicle-associated membrane protein (synaptobrevin 2)
