R SNARES

SNARE Proteins where the central amino acid residue of the SNARE motif is an Arginine. They are classified separately from the Q-SNARE Proteins where the central amino acid residue of the SNARE motif is a Glutamine. This subfamily contains the vesicle associated Membrane Proteins (VAMPs) based on similarity to the prototype for the R-SNAREs, VAMP2 (Synaptobrevin 2).
