Synaptophysin (SypI), also referred as p38 (1), constitutes approximately 7% of the total vesicle protein and is selectively associated with small synaptic vesicles (SSVs). Syp I contains four transmembrane regions and can be phosphorylated on its cytoplasmic C-terminus by both serine/threonine and tyrosine kinases (2). In addition to syp I, synaptic vesicles contain a highly homologous membrane protein named synaptoporin or synaptophysin II (Syp II) (3). While Syp I is ubiquitously expressed and present in virtually all synapses whereas Syp II is expressed at high levels only in selected neurons (4).
