Tested applicationsSuitable for: ICC, IHC-P, IHC-Fr, WBmore details
Species reactivityReacts with: Rat, Human
Synthetic peptide (IEPLMEPEGSYEDPPQE) corresponding to the carboxyl terminal of human beta-synuclein (108- 125) and was conjugated to diphtheria toxoid via a cystine residue added to the carboxyl terminus of the peptide. The conjugate was cross-linked by maleimidocaproyl-N-hydroxy succinimide.
Storage instructionsShipped at 4°C. Store at +4°C short term (1-2 weeks). Add glycerol to a final volume of 50% for extra stability and aliquot. Store at -20°C or -80°C. Avoid freeze / thaw cycle.
Our Abpromise guarantee covers the use of ab6165 in the following tested applications.
The application notes include recommended starting dilutions; optimal dilutions/concentrations should be determined by the end user.
|ICC||Use at an assay dependent concentration.|
|IHC-P||1/500 - 1/2000.|
|IHC-Fr||Use at an assay dependent concentration.|
|WB||Use at an assay dependent concentration.|
FunctionNon-amyloid component of senile plaques found in Alzheimer disease. Could act as a regulator of SNCA aggregation process. Protects neurons from staurosporine and 6-hydroxy dopamine (6OHDA)-stimulated caspase activation in a p53/TP53-dependent manner. Contributes to restore the SNCA anti-apoptotic function abolished by 6OHDA. Not found in the Lewy bodies associated with Parkinson disease.
Tissue specificityExpressed predominantly in brain; concentrated in presynaptic nerve terminals.
Sequence similaritiesBelongs to the synuclein family.
modificationsPhosphorylated. Phosphorylation by G-protein coupled receptor kinases (GRK) is more efficient than phosphorylation by CK1, CK2 and CaM-kinase II.

ab6165 staining beta synuclein in human occipital cortex.
Left panel: with primary antibody diluted 1:4000. Right panel: isotype control.
Sections were stained using an automated system (DAKO Autostainer Plus), at room temperature: sections were rehydrated and antigen retrieved with the Dako 3 in 1 AR buffers citrate pH6.1. Slides were peroxidase blocked in 3% H2O2 in methanol for 10 mins. They were then blocked with Dako Protein block for 10 minutes (containing casein 0.25% in PBS) then incubated with primary antibody for 20 min and detected with Dako envision flex amplification kit for 30 minutes. Colorimetric detection was completed with Diaminobenzidine for 5 minutes. Slides were counterstained with Haematoxylin and coverslipped under DePeX. Please note that for manual staining we recommend to optimize the primary antibody concentration and incubation time (overnight incubation), and amplification may be required.
