|FUNCTION: SNAREs, Soluble N-ethylmaleimide-sensitive factor- attachment protein receptors, are essential proteins for fusion of cellular membranes. SNAREs localized on opposing membranes assemble to form a trans-SNARE complex, an extended, parallel four alpha-helical bundle that drives membrane fusion. VAMP8 is a SNARE involved in autophagy through the direct control of autophagosome membrane fusion with the lysososome membrane. Also required for dense-granule secretion in platelets. Plays also a role in regulated enzyme secretion in pancreatic acinar cells. Involved in the abscission of the midbody during cell division, which leads to completely separate daughter cells. Involved in the homotypic fusion of early and late endosomes. SUBUNIT: Forms a SNARE complex composed of VAMP8, SNAP29 and STX17 involved in fusion of autophagosome with lysosome. Binds tightly to multiple syntaxins. Found in a number of SNARE complexes with NAPA, SNAP23, SNAP25, STX1A, STX4, STX7, STX8 and VTI1B. TISSUE SPECIFICITY: Platelets.|
