Synaptophysin (IPR028714)

Short name: SYP

Overlapping homologous superfamilies


Family relationships


Synaptophysin interacts with the essential synaptic vesicle protein synaptobrevin, suggesting a role for synaptophysin in the control of exocytosis [PMID: 7835333, PMID: 10066245, PMID: 1356373]. Synaptophysin regulates the kinetics of synaptic vesicle endocytosis in neurons [PMID: 21658579]. It has been shown to involved in the regulation of short-term and long-term synaptic plasticity [PMID: 10595519].
