Gene Information

human ... SYP(6855)

General description

Synaptophysin (SYP) is an integral membrane protein of synaptic vesicles. It is expressed in cortical synaptic terminals, during neurogenesis. The gene is located on human chromosome Xp11.23.
Synaptophysin is an integral membrane glycoprotein that is localized in presynaptic vesicles of nerve cells. This protein may regulate exocytosis and the formation of synaptic vesicles . Synaptophysin is encoded by the SYP gene and genetic alterations in SYP can lead to mental retardation . Anti-synaptophysin antibody specifically detects endogenous levels of total synaptophysin protein.


The antiserum was produced against synthesized peptide derived from human Synaptophysin.

Immunogen Range: 101-150


Anti-Synaptophysin antibody produced in rabbit has been used in:
  • immunocytochemistry
  • western blotting
  • immunohistochemistry
Anti-synaptophysin antibody is suitable for use in immunohistochemistry and western blot.

Biochem/physiol Actions

Synaptophysin (SYP) modulates neurotransmitter release and synaptic plasticity. It maintains biogenesis and recycling of synaptic vesicles. SYP functions as a marker for neuroendocrine tumors. It is used as a potent marker for neuroendocrine prostate cancer (NEPC). Mutations in this gene is associated with X-linked intellectual disability.
