Product nameSCAMP5 peptide
Our Abpromise guarantee covers the use of ab4971 in the following tested applications.
The application notes include recommended starting dilutions; optimal dilutions/concentrations should be determined by the end user.
This peptide may be used for neutralization and control experiments with the polyclonal antibody that reacts with this product and the rat SCAMP 5, catalog ab3432. Using a solution with equal weights per unit volume of peptide and corresponding antibody will yield a solution with a large molar excess of peptide that is able to competitively bind the antibody.

Preparation and Storage
Stability and Storage
Shipped at 4°C. Store at +4°C short term (1-2 weeks). Upon delivery aliquot. Store at -20°C or -80°C. Avoid freeze / thaw cycle.
FunctionRequired for the calcium-dependent exocytosis of signal sequence-containing cytokines such as CCL5. Probably acts in cooperation with the SNARE machinery. May play a role in accumulation of expanded polyglutamine (polyQ) protein huntingtin (HTT) in case of endoplasmic reticulum stress by inhibiting the endocytosis pathway.
Tissue specificityExpressed both by neuronal and nonneuronal tissues. Expressed in brain, stomach, thyroid, spinal cord, lymph node, trachea, adrenal gland, bone marrow and in the different parts of brain. In thyroid tissues, it is expressed by the follicular epithelial cells. In the adrenal gland tissues it is detected in the zona fasciculate of the cortex region (at protein level).
Sequence similaritiesBelongs to the SCAMP family. SCAMP5 subfamily.
Cellular localizationCell membrane. Golgi apparatus membrane. Golgi apparatus > trans-Golgi network membrane. Recycling endosome membrane. Cytoplasmic vesicle > secretory vesicle > synaptic vesicle membrane. Mainly localizes in Golgi apparatus membrane. Upon calcium-triggered exocytosis, it translocates to the cell membrane. Highly enriched in synaptic vesicles.
