Synaptophysin (SYP) is an integral membrane glycoprotein of 38,000 Da and it has four membrane-spanning domains. Synaptophysin is localized to neurons, neuromuscular junctions, paraganglia cells, hypophysis, pancreatic islet cells, and adrenal cells. SYP gene is mapped to human chromosome Xp11.23. Monoclonal Anti-Synaptophysin (mouse IgG1 isotype) is derived from the hybridoma produced by the fusion of mouse myeloma cells and splenocytes from an immunized mouse.
Labels synaptophysin in neurons, neuromuscular junctions, benign and malignant neural tumors, paraganglia cells, hypophysis, pancreatic islet cells, and adrenal cells.
Rat retina synaptosome.
Monoclonal Anti-Synaptophysin antibody has been used in western blotting.
Synaptophysin participates in calcium dependent exocytosis. The antibody detects synaptophysin in many types of benign and malignant neural and epithelial neuroendocrine neoplasms. It is widely used as a potential marker to study the circulation of synapses in the brain and to discover the basic features of the life cycle of synaptic vesicles (SVs).
Monoclonal Anti-Synaptophysin is provided as ascites fluid containing 0.1% sodium azide.
Storage and Stability
For continuous use, store at 2-8 °C for up to one month. For extended storage, the solution may be frozen in working aliquots. Repeated freezing and thawing is not recommended. Storage in "frost-free" freezers is not recommended. If slight turbidity occurs upon prolonged storage, clarify by centrifugation before use.
