Clone Host Grade Applications
Monoclonal Mouse Affinity Purified E B IH
This antibody recognizes a-synuclein, which belongs to a family of small cytoplasmic proteins expressed predominantly in neurons. The epitope maps to amino acid residues 121-125 of human a-synuclein. a-synuclein may be involved in neuronal plasticity and could act as a molecular chaperone that mediates the transformation of soluble AB into insoluble amyloid. The protein is a major component of Lewy bodies, the pathological hallmark of Parkinsonís disease, and is also observed in senile plaques of Alzheimerís disease patients. Human a-synuclein appears to be phosphorylated at two major sites, serine 129 and serine 87, and phosphorylation may play a role in the functional regulation of the protein.
