The application notes include recommended starting dilutions; optimal dilutions/concentrations should be determined by the end user.
Use a concentration of 1 µg/ml. Detects a band of approximately 38 kDa (predicted molecular weight: 34 kDa).
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.
