Psychiatry related information on Stx5a

  • Among familial Alzheimer's disease (FAD)-linked PS mutants, PS1deltaE9, which lacks the endoproteolytic cleavage site, showed markedly decreased binding to Syx 5 [1].

High impact information on Stx5a

  • Syx 5, which localizes from the endoplasmic reticulum (ER) to the Golgi, bound to PS holoproteins, while the other Syxs studied did not [1].
  • We therefore set out to identify the molecular determinants for localizing several syntaxin isoforms, including syntaxins 3, 4, and 5, to their respective intracellular compartments (plasma membrane for syntaxins 3 and 4; cis-Golgi for syntaxin 5) [2].
  • Furthermore, truncation of the syntaxin 3 transmembrane domain to 17 amino acids resulted in a complete conversion to cis-Golgi compartmentalization that was indistinguishable from syntaxin 5 [2].
