  • Function
    t-SNARE involved in the molecular regulation of neurotransmitter release. May play an important role in the synaptic function of specific neuronal systems. Associates with proteins involved in vesicle docking and membrane fusion. Regulates plasma membrane recycling through its interaction with CENPF.
  • Tissue specificity
    Neurons of the neocortex, hippocampus, piriform cortex, anterior thalamic nuclei, pontine nuclei, and granule cells of the cerebellum.
  • Sequence similarities
    Belongs to the SNAP-25 family.
    Contains 2 t-SNARE coiled-coil homology domains.
  • Post-translational
    Palmitoylated. Cys-85 appears to be the main site, and palmitoylation is required for membrane association.
  • Cellular localization
    Cytoplasm > perinuclear region. Cell membrane. Cell junction > synapse > synaptosome. Membrane association requires palmitoylation. Expressed throughout cytoplasm, concentrating at the perinuclear region.

  • ICC/IF image of ab41455 stained human SH-SY5Y cells. The cells were PFA fixed (10 min), permabilised in TBS-T (20 min) and incubated with the antibody (ab41455, 5µg/ml) for 1h at room temperature. 1%BSA / 10% normal goat serum / 0.3M glycine was used to quench autofluorescence and block non-specific protein-protein interactions. 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). DAPI was used to stain the cell nuclei (blue).

Tissue from 4% PFA perfused animals underwent overnight fixation in 4% paraformaldehyde, cryoprotected in 30% sucrose and cut using cryostat.The primary antibody was diluted, 1/3000 (PBS + 0.3% Triton X100) and incubated with sample for 18 hours at 20°C. An abcam antibody ab60314, Chromeo488 conjugated goat polyclonal to rabbit IgG, diluted 1/1000 was used as secondary.

    The picture shows the staining obtained at the level of the hippocampus. The staining was very strong, located in the whole brain.

  • SNAP25 was immunoprecipitated using 0.5mg Rat Spinal Cord tissue lysate, 5µg of Rabbit polyclonal to SNAP25 and 50µl of protein G magnetic beads (+). No antibody was added to the control (-).
    The antibody was incubated under agitation with Protein G beads for 10min, Rat Spinal Cord tissue lysate lysate diluted in RIPA buffer was added to each sample and incubated for a further 10min under agitation.
    Proteins were eluted by addition of 40µl SDS loading buffer and incubated for 10min at 70oC; 10µl of each sample was separated on a SDS PAGE gel, transferred to a nitrocellulose membrane, blocked with 5% BSA and probed with ab41455.
    Secondary: Clean-Blot IP Detection Reagent (HRP) at 1/500 dilution.
    Band: 26kDa; SNAP25

Thank you for contacting us and for letting us know about the trouble with ab53723. I am sorry that the results have not been satisfactory. I do have a couple of questions so that I can better understand the situation: 1) What region of brain was the human sample taken from? SNAP25 is only expressed in certain regions which could account for the difference in signal from the rat cortex samples and the human brain samples. 2) What kind of blocking solution was used? 3) What lysis buffer was used to produce the tissue homogenate? We do guarantee all of our products to work as stated on the datasheet for up to 6 months after purchase, so I will be happy to either send a replacement such as ab41455 or refund the original purchase if the antibody is not working properly. I look forward to hearing from you. Please let me know if you have any questions.
