Mint 1 and 2 are proteins that bind to munc18-1, an essential component of the synaptic vesicle fusion machinery, and are detectably expressed only in neurons [Okamoto and Südhof, J. Biol. Chem. 272, 31459-31464 (1997)]. Mint 1 and 2 are composed of a variable N-terminal region that includes a conserved munc18-1-binding site, and a constant C-terminal region that contains one PTB and two PDZ domains. We have now identified a third mint isoform, mint 3. Similar to mint 1 and 2, the C-terminal… CONTINUE READING
