Eukaryotic protein trafficking involves the packaging of target molecules into membraneous vesicles that bud from a donor compartment, travel to a specific destination, fuse, and release their components into an acceptor compartment. Components of both the vesicle and the plasma membrane interact to form a fusion complex, which mediates specific docking and fusion of vesicles. This complex contains NSF (N-ethyl-maleimide-sensitive factor), SNAPs (soluble NSF attachment proteins), and receptor proteins (SNAREs). SNAP-25 (synaptosome-associated protein of 25kDa) and syntaxin are SNAREs that are associated with the target plasma membrane (t-SNAREs), while synaptobrevin and synaptotagmin are vesicle-associated SNARE proteins (v-SNAREs). SNAREs form a 7S complex that has a high affinity binding site for α-SNAP and NSF. Upon binding of α-SNAP and NSF, a 20S complex is formed that is rapidly disassembled due to NSF's ATPase activity. This facilitates vesicle fusion to the target membrane followed by fusion and release of vesicle components.
