    basic FUNCTION
  • playing an important role in synaptic transmission and synaptic plasticity
  • integrating active zone proteins and synaptic vesicles into a molecular scaffold that controls neurotransmitter release
  • regulating vesicle exocytosis during short-term plasticity
  • playing a possible role in the enhancement of cognitive function
  • RIMS1 and RIMS2 are multidomain active zone proteins of presynaptic terminals
  • RIMS1 and RIMS2 are not essential for synapse formation or synaptic exocytosis, but are required for normal Ca(2+)-triggering of exocytosis
  • mediates presynaptic plasticity and cognitive function
  • RIMS1, and RIMS2 co-ordinately regulate key functions for fast transmitter release, enabling a high presynaptic Ca²+ channel density and vesicle docking at the presynaptic active zone
  • acts as a functional link between neuronal Ca(V) channels and the machinery for exocytosis
  • might play a role in docking the RAB3-bound vesicles near CaV channels, functionally coupling channel activity to the exocytotic machinery in insulin-secreting cell
  • co-ordinately regulate key functions for fast transmitter release, enabling a high presynaptic Ca²+ channel density and vesicle docking at the active zone
  • essential not only for the integrity of the presynaptic active zone (AZ) scaffold but also for exocytotic neurotransmitter release
  • primarily act in release as physical Ca(2+)-channel tethers and not as Ca(2+)-channel modulators
  • presynaptic plasticity and proper function of RIMS1 play an important part in a neuron adaptive response to aberrant electrical activity

    small molecule
  • RAB3A
  • interaction between UNC13A and RIMS1 is critical for glucagon-like peptide-1 mediated rescue of exocytotic defects in UNC13A deficient pancreatic beta-cells
  • PPFIA2 promotes the presynaptic recruitment and turnover of RIMS1/CASK to facilitate synaptic transmission
  • PNKD interacts with synaptic active zone proteins Rab3-interacting molecule (RIMS1) and RIMS2, localizes to synapses, and modulates neurotransmitter release
