Product Notices

  1. Since applications vary, each investigator should titrate the reagent to obtain optimal results.
  2. Please refer to for technical protocols.
  3. Caution: Sodium azide yields highly toxic hydrazoic acid under acidic conditions. Dilute azide compounds in running water before discarding to avoid accumulation of potentially explosive deposits in plumbing.

Synuclein cDNA was isolated from Torpedo californica and found to encode a 143 amino acid neuron-specific protein. In addition, a rat brain cDNA library yielded several clones that encode different proteins with homology to Torpedo Synuclein. A 140 amino acid protein in rat is referred to as Synuclein-1. In situ hybridization shows synuclein mRNAs in discrete areas of rat brain, notably the hippocampus. In humans, two synuclein proteins of 140 and 134 amino acids were sequenced that exhibit a high degree of homology with each other (61% identity) and with previously described Synuclein proteins. The 140 amino acid protein (α-Synuclein) is the human homologue of rat Synuclein-1 and is identical to the non-amyloid-β component precursor (NACP), a presynaptic protein  involved in amyloidogenesis in Alzheimer's disease (AD). The 134 amino acid protein (β-Synuclein) is the human homologue of bovine phosphoneuroprotein. These proteins are expressed in brain, primarily in presynaptic nerve terminals. Although the exact function of the Synucleins has not been determined, they have been linked to the prominent neurodegenerative disorders AD and Parkinson's disease.

This antibody is routinely tested by western blot analysis. Other applications were tested at BD Biosciences Pharmingen during antibody development only or reported in the literature.

Tissue culture supernatant is purified by either protein A/G or affinity purification methods. Both methods yield antibody in solution that is free of most other soluble proteins, lipids, etc. This format provides pure antibody that is suitable for a number of downstream applications including: secondary labeling for flow cytometry or microscopy, ELISA, Western blot, etc.
