  • Target

    • RelevanceSynucleins are small soluble proteins expressed primarily in neural tissues and in certain tumors. The family includes 3 known proteins, alpha synuclein, beta synuclein and gamma synuclein. All synucleins have in common a highly conserved alpha helical lipid binding motif with similarity to the class A2 lipid binding domains of the exchangeable apolipoproteins. The alpha and beta synuclein proteins are found primarily in brain tissue, where they are seen mainly in pre synaptic terminals. Alpha synuclein is believed to be a major component of Lewy bodies in Parkinson’s disease. Mutations in alpha synuclein are associated with rare familial cases of early onset Parkinson’s disease, Alzheimer’s disease and several other neurodegenerative illnesses.
    • Cellular localizationCytoplasmic. Membrane bound in dopaminergic neurons. Also found in the nucleus.

    • Immunocytochemistry/Immunofluorescence analysis of PC-12 cells labelling alpha + beta Synuclein with purified ab51252 at 1/100. Cells were fixed with 4% paraformaldehyde and permeabilized with 0.1% Triton X-100. ab150077, an Alexa Fluor® 488-conjugated goat anti-rabbit IgG (1/1000) was used as the secondary antibody. DAPI (blue) was used as the nuclear counterstain. ab7291, a mouse anti-tubulin (1/1000) and ab150120, an Alexa Fluor® 594-conjugated goat anti-mouse IgG (1/1000) were also used.

      Control 1: primary antibody (1/100) and secondary antibody, ab150120, an Alexa Fluor® 594-conjugated goat anti-mouse IgG (1/1000).

      Control 2: ab7291 (1/1000) and secondary antibody, ab150077, an Alexa Fluor® 488-conjugated goat anti-rabbit IgG (1/1000).

The secondary antibody used was FITC goat anti-rabbit at a dilution of 1 in 500. Rabbit monoclonal IgG was used as an isotype control (black line) and cells incubated in the absence of both primary and secondary antibody were used as a negative control (blue line).

    • Immunocytochemistry/Immunofluorescence analysis of rat primary hippocampal neurons, staining alpha + beta Synuclein with unpurified ab51252. Cells were fixed, permeabilized, and blocked with 10% donkey serum at room temperature. Cells were incubated with primary antibody (1/1000) at 4°C for 24 hours. A Cy2-conjugated donkey anti-rabbit IgG was used as the secondary antibody.

    • Overlay histogram showing SH-SY5Y cells stained with unpurified ab51252 (red line). The cells were fixed with 4% paraformaldehyde (10 min) and then permeabilized with 0.1% PBS-Tween for 20 min. The cells were then incubated in 1x PBS / 10% normal goat serum / 0.3M glycine to block non-specific protein-protein interactions followed by the antibody (unpurified ab51252, 1/1000 dilution) for 30 min at 22°C. The secondary antibody used was Alexa Fluor® 488 goat anti-rabbit IgG (H+L) (ab150077) at 1/2000 dilution for 30 min at 22°C. Isotype control antibody (black line) was rabbit IgG (monoclonal) (0.1μg/1x106 cells) used under the same conditions. Unlabelled sample (blue line) was also used as a control. Acquisition of >5,000 events were collected using a 20mW Argon ion laser (488nm) and 525/30 bandpass filter.
