|Application ||WB, IHC, E|
|Clone Names||2B2D1; 2B2A11|
|Calculated MW||14460 Da|
|Description||Alpha-synuclein (SNCA), with 140-amino acid protein (about 15kDa), belongs to the synuclein family, which also includes beta- and gamma-synuclein. SNCA is a soluble protein, expressed principally in the brain but also expressed in low concentrations in all tissues examined (except liver). SNCA is implicated in the regulation of dopamine release and transport. The triplication of the SNCA can cause Parkinson disease (PD) and diffuse Lewy body disease within the same kindred. SNCA peptides are a major component of amyloid plaques in the brains of patients with Alzheimer's disease. Immunohistochemistry for SNCA has become the histological technique of choice for the diagnosis for Parkinson's disease, Dementia with Lewy bodies and Multiple System Atrophy.|
|Immunogen||Purified recombinant fragment of SNCA expressed in E. Coli. |
|Formulation||Ascitic fluid containing 0.03% sodium azide.|
|Other Names||Alpha-synuclein, Non-A beta component of AD amyloid, Non-A4 component of amyloid precursor, NACP, SNCA, NACP, PARK1|
|Dilution||WB~~1/500 - 1/2000|
IHC~~1/200 - 1/1000
|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||SNCA Antibody is for research use only and not for use in diagnostic or therapeutic procedures.|
|Function||May be involved in the regulation of dopamine release and transport. Induces fibrillization of microtubule-associated protein tau. Reduces neuronal responsiveness to various apoptotic stimuli, leading to a decreased caspase-3 activation.|
|Cellular Location||Cytoplasm, cytosol Membrane. Nucleus. Cell junction, synapse. Secreted. Note=Membrane-bound in dopaminergic neurons.|
|Tissue Location||Expressed principally in brain but is also expressed in low concentrations in all tissues examined except in liver. Concentrated in presynaptic nerve terminals|
