Immunogen Peptide sequence around AA 257-261 (G-P-T-S-F) derived from Rat synaptophysin 2. Antibodies were produced by immunizing rabbits with synthetic peptide and KLH conjugates.
Specificity The antibody detects endogenous levels of total synaptophysin 2 protein.
Purification Affinity purified
Background Synaptophysin (SYP) is a neuronal synaptic vesicle glycoprotein that is expressed in neuroendocrine cells and neoplasms, and thus can be used as a marker in tumor diagnosis (1). Synaptophysin contains four transmembrane domains that form a hexameric channel or gap junction-like pore (2). Synaptophysin binds to the SNARE protein synaptobrevin/VAMP, which prevents the inclusion of synaptobrevin in the synaptic vesicle fusion complex and creates a pool of synaptobrevin for exocytosis when synapse activity increases (3). Synaptophysin is also responsible for targeting synaptobrevin 2/VAMP2 to synaptic vesicles, a critical component of the fusion complex
