• Product name
    Anti-gamma Synuclein antibody
    See all gamma Synuclein primary antibodies
  • Description
    Rabbit polyclonal to gamma Synuclein
  • Host species
  • Specificity
    The immunizing peptide was chosen to avoid cross-reactivity of the antiserum to other synucleins. Immunohistochemical and western blot analysis of human brain indicates a high level of specificity for this antiserum.
  • Tested applications
    Suitable for: ICC/IF, IP, IHC-P, IHC-Fr, WBmore details
  • Species reactivity
    Reacts with: Rat, Human
  • Immunogen

    Synthetic peptide


    corresponds to amino acids 114-127 of the human gamma synuclein protein. The conjugate was cross-linked by maleimidocaproyl-N-hydroxy succinimide (MSC) and coupled to diphtheria toxoid.



Our Abpromise guarantee covers the use of ab6169 in the following tested applications.

The application notes include recommended starting dilutions; optimal dilutions/concentrations should be determined by the end user.

  • Target

    • Function
      Plays a role in neurofilament network integrity. May be involved in modulating axonal architecture during development and in the adult. In vitro, increases the susceptibility of neurofilament-H to calcium-dependent proteases (By similarity). May also function in modulating the keratin network in skin. Activates the MAPK and Elk-1 signal transduction pathway.
    • Tissue specificity
      Highly expressed in brain, particularly in the substantia nigra. Also expressed in the corpus callosum, heart, skeletal muscle, ovary, testis, colon and spleen. Weak expression in pancreas, kidney and lung.
    • Sequence similarities
      Belongs to the synuclein family.
    • Post-translational
      Phosphorylated. Phosphorylation by GRK5 appears to occur on residues distinct from the residue phosphorylated by other kinases.
    • Cellular localization
      Cytoplasm > perinuclear region. Cytoplasm > cytoskeleton > centrosome. Cytoplasm > cytoskeleton > spindle. Associated with centrosomes in several interphase cells. In mitotic cells, localized to the poles of the spindle.

    • ab6169 was tested on recombinant protein only, 100ng recombinant protein each lane. 1= alpha-synuclein, 2 =  beta-synuclein, 3 = gamma-synuclein. The primary was 1/2000, secondary was alkaline phosphatase conjugated anti-rabbit from Sigma. We did not try it on crude samples such as brain or other tissue homogenates.

    • ICC/IF image of ab6169 stained MCF7 cells. The cells were 4% PFA fixed (10 min) and then incubated in 1%BSA / 10% normal goat serum / 0.3M glycine in 0.1% PBS-Tween for 1h to permeabilise the cells and block non-specific protein-protein interactions. The cells were then incubated with the antibody (ab6169, 5µg/ml) overnight at +4°C. The secondary antibody (green) was Alexa Fluor® 488 goat anti-rabbit IgG (H+L) used at a 1/1000 dilution for 1h. Alexa Fluor® 594 WGA was used to label plasma membranes (red) at a 1/200 dilution for 1h. DAPI was used to stain the cell nuclei (blue) at a concentration of 1.43µM.

    • IHC image of ab6169 staining in human breast carcinoma formalin fixed paraffin embedded tissue section, performed on a Leica BondTM system using the standard protocol F. The section was pre-treated using heat mediated antigen retrieval with sodium citrate buffer (pH6, epitope retrieval solution 1) for 20 mins. The section was then incubated with ab6169, 1µg/ml, for 15 mins at room temperature and detected using an HRP conjugated compact polymer system. DAB was used as the chromogen. The section was then counterstained with haematoxylin and mounted with DPX.

      For other IHC staining systems (automated and non-automated) customers should optimize variable parameters such as antigen retrieval conditions, primary antibody concentration and antibody incubation times.

    The antibody should work on paraffin embedded breast cancer tissue, as it works fine with paraffin embedded human brain tissue which contained abundant gamma-synuclein. However, we have not tried any non-neural tissues.

    For neurological tissue, the use of a scientific microwave is preferable, as it can be set to just below boiling to help minimise the risk of section dissociation. We have no experience of this particular antibody in non-neural tissue. For a general...
