The synapsins (I, II, and III) comprise a family of peripheral membrane proteins that are involved in both regulation of neurotransmitter release and synaptogenesis. Synapsins are concentrated at presynaptic nerve terminals and are associated with the cytoplasmic surface of synaptic vesicles. Membrane-binding of synapsins involves interaction with both protein and lipid components of synaptic vesicles. Synapsin I binds rapidly and with high affinity to liposomes containing anionic lipids.
