SNAP 25 (synaptosome-associated protein of 25kD) is a SNAP (soluble N-ethylmaleimide-sensitive fusion (NSF) attachment protein) receptor (SNARE-related protein) which is tightly associated with the plasma membrane by means of the palmitoylation of a cluster of cysteine residues with its structure. SNAP 25 is specifically cleaved close to the carboxyl terminal by the botulinum neurotoxins (BoNT) A and E which are known to inhibit neurotransmitter release. Similar inhibitory effects of BoNT/A and E have been recorded for non-neuronal secretory cells, such as adrenal medulla, This leads to the identification of SNAP 25 in SNARE-like complexes precipitated from chromaffin cells.

Suitable for use in ELISA, Western Blot and Immunohistochemistry. Other applications not tested.

Recommended Dilutions:
Western Blot: 1:500-1:5000. Detects a band at ~26-27kD.
Immunohistochemistry (Paraffin): 1:2000-1:5000. No pretreatment or antigen retrieval using heat treatment is required.
Optimal dilutions to be determined by the researcher.

Storage and Stability:
May be stored at 4C for short-term only. Aliquot to avoid repeated freezing and thawing. Store at -20C. Aliquots are stable for 12 months. For maximum recovery of product, centrifuge the original vial after thawing and prior to removing the cap.
