    basic FUNCTION
  • both SYTL1 and SYTL2 may form part of a docking complex, capturing secretory lysosomes at the immunological synapse
  • is required for cytotoxic granule docking at the immunologic synapse
  • functions as a low affinity, fast exocytic Ca(2+) sensor in neurons, where it is activated by Ca(2+) influx through voltage-gated channels
  • can serve as an exocytic sensor for diverse Ca(2+) signaling systems, and its levels are limiting for stimulated secretory function in airway goblet cells
  • is required for stress-induced mitochondrial hyperfusion
  • is required for targeting of the signaling molecule podocalyxin to the apical membrane in a RAB27A-dependent manner
  • controls renal cell size through regulation of Rap-ezrin signaling independently of RAB27A

    protein
  • binding RAB27A/B (GTP bound form)
  • CALM1 suppresses SYTL2 transcription in cortical neurons
  • SYTL2 is a RAB27A effector protein that regulates transport of RAB27A-bearing vesicles and organelles through its N-terminal RAB27A-binding domain and a phospholipid-binding C2A domain
