Application Abreviews Notes
WB 1/2000. Detects a band of approximately 70 kDa for the fusion protein (predicted molecular weight for the native protein: 15 kDa).


  • Function

    May modulate a step between vesicle priming, fusion and calcium-dependent neurotransmitter release by potentiating the interaction of synaptotagmins with the SNAREs and the plasma-membrane-associated protein SNAP25. Its phosphorylation state influences exocytotic protein interactions and may regulate synaptic vesicle exocytosis. May also have a role in the mechanisms of SNARE-mediated membrane fusion in non-neuronal cells.
  • Tissue specificity

    Expressed in male germ cells of adult testis (at protein level).
  • Sequence similarities

    Belongs to the SNAPIN family.
  • Developmental stage

    Expressed in germ cells of 22-week prenatal testis.
  • Cellular localization

    Cytoplasm. Membrane. Cytoplasmic vesicle membrane. Cytoplasmic vesicle > secretory vesicle > synaptic vesicle membrane. Cell junction > synapse > synaptosome. Cytoplasm > perinuclear region. May be cytoplasmic and peripheral membrane bound or anchored to the vesicular membrane through an N-terminal signal anchor (By similarity). Co-localizes with NANOS1 and PUM2 in the perinuclear region of germ cells.

  • Anti-SNAPIN antibody (ab37496) at 1/2000 dilution + E. coli derived fusion protein at 2.5 µg

    Goat anti IgY HRP at 1/1000 dilution

    Observed band size: 70 kDa
    why is the actual band size different from the predicted?

    Band size larger than expected as a fusion protein was used as positive control.
