Gene Snapshot
Spartin is a multi-functional protein associated with organelle membranes, including endosomes, lipid droplets, and mitochondria. Spartin participates in cytokinesis, BMP receptor trafficking, lipid droplet turnover, and mitochondrial Ca2+ homeostasis. [Date last reviewed: 2016-12-15]

UniProt Contributed Function Data
During postembryonic development, functions with endocytic adapter Eps-15 in neurons to restrain synaptic growth, by inhibiting BMP signaling, and to control synaptic endocytosis. Required presynaptically for neuromuscular junction (NMJ) neurotransmission. Inhibits neuronal BMP signaling by promoting endocytic internalization and subsequent endosomal trafficking of the BMP receptor wit. In this way, regulates the Fmr1 translational regulator controlling Futsch expression to modulate neuronal microtubule stability, which controls both synaptogenesis and neuronal survival.

Additional Descriptive Data
spartin protein in found in the brain and ventral nerve cord neuropil of third instar larva, co-localising with Syt1. In the larval neuromuscular junction, spartin protein is detected in domains adjacent to active zones and within synaptic boutons, in a punctate distribution which partially co-localises with the early endosome marker Rab5.
