RIMs are presynaptic active zone proteins that regulate Ca2+ triggered release of neurotransmitters. RIM 1α and RIM 2α are composed of an N-terminal zinc-finger domain, a central PDZ domain and two C-terminal C2 domains that are seperated by long alternatively spliced sequences.
RIM 1α is a putative Rab 3a effector and has been shown to interact with other active zone proteins like Munc13-1, ERC 1b, ERC 2 and α-liprins. Deletion of RIM 1α in mice impaired neurotransmitter release without changing the structure of the synapse.
RIM 2β consists of a specific N-terminus, the central PDZ domain and the C-terminal C2 domains. The mRNA for RIM 2β is transcribed from an internal promoter of the RIM 2α gene.
Shorter variants of RIM 2 which comprise only the C-terminal C2B domain and some flanking regions are referred to as NIM 2 / RIM 2γ and NIM 3 / RIM 3γ.
