Disease relevance of STX18

  • Interaction of tSNARE syntaxin 18 with the papillomavirus minor capsid protein mediates infection [1].

High impact information on STX18


Biological context of STX18

  • We examined the effect of overexpression of FLAG-tagged syntaxin 18 and a mutant lacking the N-terminal 81 amino acid residues on protein transport and organelles in the early secretory pathway [3].
  • Expression in these cells of dominant-negative mutants of syntaxin 18 or D12 lacking the transmembrane domain, but not a Sec22b mutant, impaired phagocytosis [2].
