Syntaxin 3

... as signaling molecule. But I don't know much about this. But I think he also mentioned the RanBP5. So far I know there is only a cleavage site in syntaxin 3 which is missing in the other syntaxins. I searched for this information and I found something that syntaxin 3 is involved in polarizing. ...

The Fiber Disease

... and lipids are transported to the apical or basolateral surfaces by vesicular carriers. The fusion of these carriers with the surface involves syntaxin proteins, which are found on the target membrane. We have found that syntaxin 4 is exclusively basolateral, while syntaxin 3 is exclusively ...

Is this what you meant? I can go into the biochemistry of syntaxin and VAMP but i don't understand those very well myself, i need to take more organic chemistry Yes yes go ahead tell me whatever you know, tell me about the SNARE complex
