  • Target

    • Function
      Involved in the targeting and/or fusion of transport vesicles to their target membrane. Involved for dense-granule secretion in platelets. Plays a role in regulated enzyme secretion in pancreatic acinar cells. Involved in the abscission of the midbody during cell division, which leads to completely separate daughter cells. Involved in the homotypic fusion of early and late endosomes.
    • Tissue specificity
    • Sequence similarities
      Belongs to the synaptobrevin family.
      Contains 1 v-SNARE coiled-coil homology domain.

    The immunogen for this antibody was a synthetic peptide derived from the N-terminal domain of human endobrevin/VAMP8.

    No cross-reactivity was found on rat PC12 and canine MDCK cell extracts. Cross reactivity in other species has not yet been tested. Specific reference: Lafont et al., PNAS 1999
