Decreased levels of synaptosomal associated protein 25 in the brain of patients with Down syndrome and Alzheimer's disease.


Synaptosomal associated protein 25 kDa (snap-25) is a widely distributed membrane-associated protein in the brain, mainly localized in nerve terminals. In nerve terminals, snap-25 participates in docking and/or fusion of synaptic vesicles with the plasmalemma, a process essential for synaptic vesicle exocytosis. Recent work suggests a role in brain… (More)
