  Domain Name: SynN
Syntaxin N-terminus domain; syntaxins are nervous system-specific proteins implicated in the docking of synaptic vesicles with the presynaptic plasma membrane; they are a family of receptors for intracellular transport vesicles; each target membrane may be identified by a specific member of the syntaxin family; syntaxins contain a moderately well conserved amino-terminal domain, called Habc, whose structure is an antiparallel three-helix bundle; a linker of about 30 amino acids connects this to the carboxy-terminal region, designated H3 (t_SNARE), of the syntaxin cytoplasmic domain; the highly conserved H3 region forms a single, long alpha-helix when it is part of the core SNARE complex and anchors the protein on the cytoplasmic surface of cellular membranes; H3 is not included in defining this domain
No pairwise interactions are available for this conserved domain.

This domain occurred 9 times on human genes (12 proteins).

 If you've navigated here from a protein, hovering over a position on the weblogo will display the corresponding protein position for that domain position.

 The histograms below the weblogo indicate mutations found on the domain. Red is for disease (OMIM) and blue is for SNPs.

 Functional Features are displayed as orange boxes under the histograms. You can choose which features are displayed in the box below.
