Syntaxin-17 - P56962 (STX17_HUMAN)


Protein Feature View of PDB entries mapped to a UniProtKB sequence  

SNAREs, soluble N-ethylmaleimide-sensitive factor-attachment protein receptors, are essential proteins for fusion of cellular membranes. SNAREs localized on opposing membranes assemble to form a trans-SNARE complex, an extended, parallel four alpha-helical bundle that drives membrane fusion (PubMed:23217709, PubMed:25686604, PubMed:28306502). STX17 is a SNARE of the autophagosome involved in autophagy through the direct control of autophagosome membrane fusion with the lysosome membrane (PubMed:23217709, PubMed:25686604, PubMed:28306502). May also play a role in the early secretory pathway where it may maintain the architecture of the endoplasmic reticulum-Golgi intermediate compartment/ERGIC and Golgi and/or regulate transport between the endoplasmic reticulum, the ERGIC and the Golgi (PubMed:21545355).

Subunit Structure
Forms a SNARE complex composed of VAMP8, SNAP29 and STX17 involved in fusion of autophagosome with lysosome (PubMed:23217709, PubMed:25686604). Interacts with VAMP7 and VTI1B (PubMed:23217709). Probably interacts with BET1, SCFD1 and SEC22B (By similarity). Interacts with PTPN2 and ABL1; involved in STX17 phosphorylation (PubMed:23006999). Interacts with COPB1 (By similarity). Interacts with TMED9 and TMED10; the interaction is direct (PubMed:21545355). Interacts with ATG14 (PubMed:25686604). Interacts with RUBCNL/PACER; promoting targeting of RUBCNL/PACER to autophagosome (PubMed:28306502, PubMed:30704899). Interacts with VAMP8, SNAP29, VPS39 and VPS41; these interactions are increased in the absence of TMEM39A (PubMed:31806350). UniProt

Data origin/color codes
The vertical color bar on the left side indicates data provenance.
Data in green originates from UniProtKB  
Variation data (sourced from UniProt) shows non-genetic variation from the ExPASy   and dbSNP   websites.
Data in yellow originates from Pfam  , by interacting with the HMMER3 web site  
Data in purple originates from Phosphosite  .
Data in orange originates from the SCOP   (version 1.75) and SCOPe   (version 2.04) classifications.
Data in grey has been calculated using BioJava  . Protein disorder predictions are based on JRONN (Troshin, P. and Barton, G. J. unpublished), a Java implementation of RONN  
  • Red: potentially disorderd region
  • Blue: probably ordered region.
Hydropathy has been calculated using a sliding window of 15 residues and summing up scores from standard hydrophobicity tables.
  • Red: hydrophobic
  • Blue: hydrophilic.
Data in lilac represent the genomic exon structure projected onto the UniProt sequence.
Data in blue originates from PDB
  • Secstruc: Secondary structure projected from representative PDB entries onto the UniProt sequence.
Sequence Mismatches It is now possible to see information about expression tags, cloning artifacts, and many other details related to sequence mismatches.
Icons represent a number of different sequence modifications that can be observed in PDB files. For example the 'T' icon T represents expression tags that have been added to the sequence. The 'E' icon E represents an engineered mutation. However, besides these two, there are many other icons. For more information about the meaning and exact position of a sequence modification, move the cursor over the icon.
