Technical Data
Synaptophysin labels normal neuroendocrine cells of human adrenal medulla, carotid body, skin, pituitary gland, thyroid, lung, pancreas, gastrointestinal mucosa, Paneth’s cells in the gastrointestinal tract and of gastric parietal cells. Neurons in the brain, spinal cord, and retina are also labelled. Anti-synaptophysin reacts with neuroendocrine neoplasms of neural as well as epithelial types e.g. neuroblastomas, ganglioneuroblastomas. ganglioneuromas, pheo-chromocytomas, chromaffin, and non-chromaffin paragangliomas. Of the epithelial types include pituitary adenomas, islet cell neoplasms, medullathyroid carcinomas, parathyroid adenomas, carcinoids of the bronchopulmonary and gastro-intestinal tracts and neuroendocrine carcinomas of the skin. In combination with anti-chromogranin A and anti-NSE, anti-synaptophysin is very useful in the identification of normal neuroendocrine cells and neuroendocrine neoplasms.

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

Rat retina synaptophysin (Accession# NM_003179.2)
Supplied as a liquid, 0.09% sodium azide.
Recognizes rat Synaptophysin at ~40kD. Localizes the 38kD band of rat synaptophysin by immunoblotting. Stains synaptophysin in neurons, neuromuscular junctions, paraganglia cells, pancreatic islet cells, anterior lymphomas and adrenal cells. Detects synaptophysin in many types of benign and malignant neural and epithelial neuroendocrine neoplasmas. Species crossreactivity: human, guinea pig, porcine, mouse
Intended for research use only. Not for use in human, therapeutic, or diagnostic applications.
