T04D1.3 Details Help
Description  unc-57 encodes an ortholog of endophilin A that is required for synaptic vesicle endocytosis; UNC-57 is expressed in all neurons, at synapses and neuromuscular junctions, and (weakly) in the spermetheca; like other endophilins, UNC-57 has a large BAR domain, an N-terminal coiled-coil domain within the BAR domain, and a C-terminal SH3 domain; UNC-57 protein is necessary for proper localization of UNC-26 (synaptojanin) protein, which in turn is needed for endocytosis; unc-57 and unc-26 mutants are morphologically, ultrastructurally, and electrophysiologically similar both to one another and to double mutants, indicating that UNC-57 and UNC-26 act in a single genetic pathway.
