Interaction of syntaxins with epithelial ion channels

Academic Article


  • Recent evidence suggests that some of the syntaxin isoforms may physically interact with and regulate the transport activity of a defined set of membrane transport proteins. This review examines recent studies of the cystic fibrosis transmembrane conductance regulator and the epithelial sodium channel which define distinct roles of syntaxin 1A and syntaxin 3 in the regulation of surface expression as well as intrinsic properties of these epithelial ion transporters.
