The synaptosomal-associated protein of 25 kDa (SNAP-25) is an essential component of the core complex that mediates presynaptic vesicle trafficking. Thus, SNAP-25 is directly involved in the release of neurotransmitters. Quantitative alterations of SNAP-25 expression have been reported in brain regions and cerebrospinal fluid (CSF) of schizophrenics and in… (More)
