|Reactivity||Human, Mouse, Rat|
|Calculated MW||62847 Da|
|Other Names||Synapsin-2, Synapsin II, SYN2|
|Target/Specificity||A synthetic peptide corresponding to residues in human Synapsin II was used as an immunogen.|

The synapsins are a family of at least five proteins that are specifically associated with the cytoplasmic surface of synaptic vesicles (1, 2). They are neuron-specific phosphoproteins that selectively bind to small synaptic vesicles in the presynaptic nerve terminal (3). The synapsins are implicated in neurotransmitter release and synaptogenesis, processes believed to be aberrant in several neuropsychiatric diseases (1). Synapsin II has been reported to specifically be involved in the formation and maintenance of synapses in hippocampal neurons (4). It has also been found to play a distinct role in neuronal development, as a study reported that the deletion of synapsin II greatly retarded axon formation, and the deletion of synapsin I retarded synapse formation (5). Synapsin II was furthermore suggested to participate in cytoskeletal organization during the early stages of nerve cell development (6).
