Vesicle transport protein, Use1 (IPR019150)

Short name: Vesicle_transport_protein_Use1

Family relationships



This entry represents a family of proteins, approximately 300 residues in length, involved in vesicle transport. They have a single C-terminal transmembrane domain and a SNARE [soluble NSF (N-ethylmaleimide-sensitive fusion protein) attachment protein receptor] domain of approximately 60 residues. The SNARE domains are essential for membrane fusion and are conserved from yeasts to humans. Use1 is one of the three protein subunits that make up the SNARE complex and it is specifically required for Golgi-endoplasmic reticulum retrograde transport [PMID: 12853481].
