Application Abreviews Notes
ICC/IF 1/50 - 1/100.
WB 1/1000 - 1/5000. Detects a band of approximately 38 kDa (predicted molecular weight: 33 kDa).
  • Application notes
    Is unsuitable for Flow Cyt,IHC-P or IP.
  • Target

    • Function

      Possibly involved in structural functions as organizing other membrane components or in targeting the vesicles to the plasma membrane. Involved in the regulation of short-term and long-term synaptic plasticity.
    • Tissue specificity

      Characteristic of a type of small (30-80 nm) neurosecretory vesicles, including presynaptic vesicles, but also vesicles of various neuroendocrine cells of both neuronal and epithelial phenotype.
    • Involvement in disease

      Mental retardation, X-linked, SYP-related
    • Sequence similarities

      Belongs to the synaptophysin/synaptobrevin family.
      Contains 1 MARVEL domain.
    • Domain

      The calcium-binding activity is thought to be localized in the cytoplasmic tail of the protein.
    • Post-translational

      Ubiquitinated; mediated by SIAH1 or SIAH2 and leading to its subsequent proteasomal degradation.
    • Cellular localization

      Cytoplasmic vesicle, secretory vesicle, synaptic vesicle membrane. Cell junction, synapse, synaptosome.
