Taxilin family (IPR026183)

Short name: Taxilin_fam

Family relationships



The taxilin family of proteins includes alpha-, beta- and gamma-taxilins. They bind to members of the syntaxin protein family [PMID: 15184072], which are implicated in intracellular vesicle traffic. Taxilins might therefore be involved in this process. Alpha-taxilin may also be involved in calcium-dependent exocytosis in neuroendocrine cells [PMID: 12558796], while gamma-taxilin (also known as Elrg) may have a role in cell cycle progression [PMID: 18068885].
