Gene: Syn2 (synapsin II) Mus musculus
Symbol: Syn2
Name: synapsin II
Description: Exhibits identical protein binding activity. Involved in calcium-ion regulated exocytosis; neurotransmitter secretion; and synaptic vesicle clustering. Localizes to several cellular components, including the Schaffer collateral - CA1 synapse; glutamatergic synapse; and synaptic vesicle membrane. Used to study autism spectrum disorder and epilepsy. Human ortholog(s) of this gene implicated in schizophrenia. Is expressed in several structures, including central nervous system; eye; intercostal muscle; nerve; and reproductive system. Orthologous to human SYN2 (synapsin II); INTERACTS WITH 4-hydroxyphenyl retinamide; ATP; benzo[a]pyrene.
Type: protein-coding
RefSeq Status: VALIDATED
Also known as: 2900074L19Rik; AI836018; AI841723; synapsin 2; synapsin-2
