|Application ||WB, IHC-P, IF, E|
|Other Accession||NP_001159680, 261278297|
|Reactivity||Human, Mouse, Rat|
|Calculated MW||Predicted: 75, 99, 102 kDa |
Observed: 95 kDa
|Application Notes||SYNPO antibody can be used for detection of SYNPO by Western blot at 1 - 2 µg/mL. Antibody can also be used for immunohistochemistry starting at 2.5 µg/mL. For immunofluorescence start at 20 µg/mL.|
|Target/Specificity||SYNPO; At least three isoforms of SYNPO are known to exist; this antibody will detect all three isoforms. SYNPO antibody is predicted to not cross-react with other SYNPO family member proteins.|
|Reconstitution & Storage||SYNPO antibody can be stored at 4℃ for three months and -20℃, stable for up to one year. As with all antibodies care should be taken to avoid repeated freeze thaw cycles. Antibodies should not be exposed to prolonged high temperatures.|
|Precautions||SYNPO Antibody is for research use only and not for use in diagnostic or therapeutic procedures.|
|Function||Actin-associated protein that may play a role in modulating actin-based shape and motility of dendritic spines and renal podocyte foot processes. Seems to be essential for the formation of spine apparatuses in spines of telencephalic neurons, which is involved in synaptic plasticity (By similarity).|
|Cellular Location||Cytoplasm, cytoskeleton. Cell junction, tight junction. Perikaryon Cell projection, dendritic spine. Cell junction, synapse, postsynaptic cell membrane, postsynaptic density. Cell junction, synapse Note=Localized at the tight junction of cells. In brain, localized to the postsynaptic densities and in the perikarya. Associated with dendritic spines of a subset of synapses (By similarity)|
|Tissue Location||Expressed in cerebral cortex.|

SYNPO Antibody: SYNPO, also known as synaptopodin, is an actin-associated protein in telencephalic dendrites and renal podocytes. SYNPO is tightly associated with the dendritic spine apparatus, and mice lacking the SYNPO gene lack the apparatus. These SYNPO-null mice also demonstrate an impaired ability to express long-term potentiation as well as deficits in spatial memory tasks, indicating that SYNPO is involved in the regulation of synaptic plasticity. Recent studies suggest that SYNPO is linked to neuronal calcium stores and plays a role in the calcium store-associated ability of neurons to undergo long-term plasticity.
