The application notes include recommended starting dilutions; optimal dilutions/concentrations should be determined by the end user.
1/2000. Detects a band of approximately 38 kDa.
Use at an assay dependent dilution.
FunctionPossibly involved in structural functions as organizing other membrane components or in targeting the vesicles to the plasma membrane. Involved in the regulation of short-term and long-term synaptic plasticity.
Tissue specificityCharacteristic of a type of small (30-80 nm) neurosecretory vesicles, including presynaptic vesicles, but also vesicles of various neuroendocrine cells of both neuronal and epithelial phenotype.
Involvement in diseaseMental retardation, X-linked, SYP-related
Sequence similaritiesBelongs to the synaptophysin/synaptobrevin family. Contains 1 MARVEL domain.
DomainThe calcium-binding activity is thought to be localized in the cytoplasmic tail of the protein.
Post-translational modificationsUbiquitinated; mediated by SIAH1 or SIAH2 and leading to its subsequent proteasomal degradation.
