|Reactivity||Human, Mouse, Rat|
|Calculated MW||148284 Da|
|Other Names||Ras/Rap GTPase-activating protein SynGAP, Neuronal RasGAP, Synaptic Ras GTPase-activating protein 1, Synaptic Ras-GAP 1, SYNGAP1, KIAA1938|
|Target/Specificity||A synthetic peptide corresponding to residues on the C-terminus of human SynGAP was used as an immunogen.|
|Format||50 mM Tris-Glycine (pH 7.4), 0.15 M NaCl, 40% Glycerol, 0.01% sodium azide and 0.05% BSA.|
|Storage||Maintain refrigerated at 2-8°C for up to 6 months. For long term storage store at -20°C in small aliquots to prevent freeze-thaw cycles.|
|Precautions||SynGAP Antibody is for research use only and not for use in diagnostic or therapeutic procedures.|
|Function||Major constituent of the PSD essential for postsynaptic signaling. Inhibitory regulator of the Ras-cAMP pathway. Member of the NMDAR signaling complex in excitatory synapses, it may play a role in NMDAR-dependent control of AMPAR potentiation, AMPAR membrane trafficking and synaptic plasticity. Regulates AMPAR- mediated miniature excitatory postsynaptic currents. Exhibits dual GTPase-activating specificity for Ras and Rap. May be involved in certain forms of brain injury, leading to long-term learning and memory deficits (By similarity).|

SynGAP is a neuron-specific Ras GTPase-activating protein found in high concentration in the postsynaptic density fraction from mammalizn forebrain (1). It is a major constituent of the post synaptic density (PSD) a complex of protein that colocalize with NMDA receptors at synapses. SynGAP is phosphorylated by Ca2+/calmodulin-dependent-kinases (CaMKII) at Ser123.
