Recent studies have suggested that the soluble N-ethylmaleimide-sensitive factor attached protein (SNAP) receptor (SNARE)-mediated membrane fusion system is involved in vesicle fusion with the surface plasma membrane, which leads to neurite elongation. There have been several reports analyzing the effects of neurite outgrowth by inhibition of SNAREs. We studied this mechanism by overexpressing GFP-fusion SNAREs including VAMP-2, SNAP-25A, and syntaxin1A in PC12 cells to investigate the role of… CONTINUE READING
