FunctionMay 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.
Sequence similaritiesBelongs to the synaptotagmin family. Contains 2 C2 domains.
DomainThe first C2 domain mediates Ca(2+)-dependent phospholipid binding. The second C2 domain mediates interaction with SV2A and STN2.
