Gene: Bsn (bassoon (presynaptic cytomatrix protein)) Rattus norvegicus
Symbol: Bsn
Name: bassoon (presynaptic cytomatrix protein)
Description: Exhibits dynein light chain binding activity and transcription corepressor binding activity. Involved in presynaptic active zone assembly; regulation of ubiquitin protein ligase activity; and retrograde axonal transport. Localizes to several cellular components, including the axon cytoplasm; cytoplasmic vesicle; and hippocampal mossy fiber to CA3 synapse. Colocalizes with the synaptic membrane. Orthologous to human BSN (bassoon presynaptic cytomatrix protein); INTERACTS WITH 4-amino-2,6-dinitrotoluene; amphetamine; androgen antagonist.
Type: protein-coding
RefSeq Status: VALIDATED
Also known as: bassoon; neuronal double zinc finger protein; zinc finger protein 231; Znf231
