- This work shows that the post-Golgi trafficking of PIP2;7 involves an interaction with SYP61 and SYP121 and that SYP61 and SYP121 colocalize and are physically associated in a SNARE complex. These findings suggest that SNAREs, and possibly a SYP61/SYP121 SNARE complex, play an important role in the regulation of the transport of the plasma membrane aquaporin.
