A syntaxin family member functioning in endosomal and lysosomal fusion reactions
, a member of the SNARE family of proteins, is related to syntaxins 1-4 but localized to endosomal membranes of a wide variety of cells.
Syntaxin 7 is involved in the fusion of late endosomes and lysosomes. In endosomal membranes, it forms complexes with endobrevin
