STRINGSTRING
SLC18A3 protein (human) - STRING interaction network
"SLC18A3" - Vesicular acetylcholine transporter in Homo sapiens
Nodes:
Network nodes represent proteins
splice isoforms or post-translational modifications are collapsed, i.e. each node represents all the proteins produced by a single, protein-coding gene locus.
Node Color
colored nodes:
query proteins and first shell of interactors
white nodes:
second shell of interactors
Node Content
empty nodes:
proteins of unknown 3D structure
filled nodes:
some 3D structure is known or predicted
Edges:
Edges represent protein-protein associations
associations are meant to be specific and meaningful, i.e. proteins jointly contribute to a shared function; this does not necessarily mean they are physically binding each other.
Known Interactions
from curated databases
experimentally determined
Predicted Interactions
gene neighborhood
gene fusions
gene co-occurrence
Others
textmining
co-expression
protein homology

SLC18A3Vesicular acetylcholine transporter; Involved in acetylcholine transport into synaptic vesicles; Solute carriers (532 aa)    
Predicted Functional Partners:
SLC32A1
Vesicular inhibitory amino acid transporter; Involved in the uptake of GABA and glycine into the synaptic vesicles; Solute carriers (525 aa)
     
  0.975
SYT2
Synaptotagmin-2; Exhibits calcium-dependent phospholipid and inositol polyphosphate binding properties (By similarity). May have a regulatory role in the membrane interactions during trafficking of synaptic vesicles at the active zone of the synapse (By similarity). Plays a role in dendrite formation by melanocytes; Belongs to the synaptotagmin family (419 aa)
     
 
  0.960
SYT1
Synaptotagmin-1; May have a regulatory role in the membrane interactions during trafficking of synaptic vesicles at the active zone of the synapse. It binds acidic phospholipids with a specificity that requires the presence of both an acidic head group and a diacyl backbone. A Ca(2+)-dependent interaction between synaptotagmin and putative receptors for activated protein kinase C has also been reported. It can bind to at least three additional proteins in a Ca(2+)-independent manner; these are neurexins, syntaxin and AP2. Plays a role in dendrite formation by melanocytes; Synaptotagmins (422 aa)
     
 
  0.959
SLC17A6
Vesicular glutamate transporter 2; Mediates the uptake of glutamate into synaptic vesicles at presynaptic nerve terminals of excitatory neural cells. May also mediate the transport of inorganic phosphate; Belongs to the major facilitator superfamily. Sodium/anion cotransporter family. VGLUT subfamily (582 aa)
     
 
  0.958
SLC17A7
Vesicular glutamate transporter 1; Mediates the uptake of glutamate into synaptic vesicles at presynaptic nerve terminals of excitatory neural cells. May also mediate the transport of inorganic phosphate; Solute carriers (560 aa)
     
 
  0.958
CHAT
Choline O-acetyltransferase; Catalyzes the reversible synthesis of acetylcholine (ACh) from acetyl CoA and choline at cholinergic synapses; Belongs to the carnitine/choline acetyltransferase family (748 aa)
 
 
   
  0.956
SLC17A8
Vesicular glutamate transporter 3; Mediates the uptake of glutamate into synaptic vesicles at presynaptic nerve terminals of excitatory neural cells. May also mediate the transport of inorganic phosphate; Deafness associated genes (589 aa)
     
 
  0.954
UNC13B
Protein unc-13 homolog B; Plays a role in vesicle maturation during exocytosis as a target of the diacylglycerol second messenger pathway. Is involved in neurotransmitter release by acting in synaptic vesicle priming prior to vesicle fusion and participates in the activity- depending refilling of readily releasable vesicle pool (RRP). Essential for synaptic vesicle maturation in a subset of excitatory/glutamatergic but not inhibitory/GABA-mediated synapses (By similarity); Belongs to the unc-13 family (1591 aa)
     
 
  0.947
SNAP25
Synaptosomal-associated protein 25; t-SNARE involved in the molecular regulation of neurotransmitter release. May play an important role in the synaptic function of specific neuronal systems. Associates with proteins involved in vesicle docking and membrane fusion. Regulates plasma membrane recycling through its interaction with CENPF. Modulates the gating characteristics of the delayed rectifier voltage-dependent potassium channel KCNB1 in pancreatic beta cells; SNAREs (206 aa)
     
 
  0.938
VAMP2
Vesicle-associated membrane protein 2; Involved in the targeting and/or fusion of transport vesicles to their target membrane. Modulates the gating characteristics of the delayed rectifier voltage-dependent potassium channel KCNB1; Belongs to the synaptobrevin family (116 aa)
