Target

  • Function
    Possibly 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 specificity
    Characteristic 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 disease
    Mental retardation, X-linked, SYP-related
  • Sequence similarities
    Belongs to the synaptophysin/synaptobrevin family.
    Contains 1 MARVEL domain.
  • Domain
    The calcium-binding activity is thought to be localized in the cytoplasmic tail of the protein.
  • Post-translational
    modifications
    Ubiquitinated; mediated by SIAH1 or SIAH2 and leading to its subsequent proteasomal degradation.
  • Cellular localization
    Cytoplasmic vesicle, secretory vesicle, synaptic vesicle membrane. Cell junction, synapse, synaptosome.

  • Immunohistochemical analysis of Apteronotus leptorhynchus brain tissue, staining Synaptophysin with ab32594.

    Tissue was fixed with paraformaldehyde, permeabilized with 0.3% Triton X-100 and blocked with 3% sheep serum, 1% BSA and 1% teleostean gelatine in TBS for 1 hour at 24°. Samples were incubated with primary antibody (1/100 in blocking solution) for 18 hours at 4°C. An AlexaFluor®546-conjugated goat anti-rabbit polyclonal IgG (1/200) was used as the secondary antibody.
