|Predicted||Bovine, Human, Mouse, Monkey|
|Calculated MW||15 KDa|
|Other Names||Alpha-synuclein, Snca|
|Target/Specificity||Synthetic phospho-peptide corresponding to amino acid residues surrounding Ser129 conjugated to KLH.|
|Format||Prepared from rabbit serum by affinity purification via sequential chromatography on phospho- and dephosphopeptide affinity columns.|
|Antibody Specificity||Specific for the ~15 kDa alpha-synuclein protein phosphorylated at Ser129. Immunolabeling is blocked by the phosphopeptide used as antigen but not by the corresponding dephosphopeptide.|
|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||Phospho-Ser129 Alpha Synuclein Antibody is for research use only and not for use in diagnostic or therapeutic procedures.|

Alpha-synuclein is a presynaptic neuronal protein that is thought to be involved in the formation of SNARE complexes. Most significantly, aggregated alpha-synuclein is one of the major components found in the Lewy bodies that occur in Parkinson’s disease (PD) and other neurodegenerative disorders (Okochi et al., 2000). Mutation of the alpha-synuclein gene is associated with familial forms of PD (Newmann et al., 2002). Recent evidence suggests that phosphorylation of alpha-synuclein at ser129 plays a role in the formation of inclusions in PD (Smith et al., 2005; Masliah et al., 2005).
