Abstract: Synaptotagmin, a major intrinsic membrane protein of synaptic vesicles that binds Ca2+, was purified from bovine brain and immobilized onto Sepharose 4B. Affinity chromatography of brain membrane proteins on immobilized synaptotagmin revealed binding of alpha- and beta-neurexins to synaptotagmin in a Ca(2+)-independent manner. Using a series of recombinant proteins in which glutathione S-transferase was fused to the cytoplasmic domains of three different neurexins or of control proteins, it was found that syna…
