Technical Data
Synuclein, alpha (Alpha-Synuclein, SNCA, Non-A beta Component of AD Amyloid, Non-A4 Component of Amyloid Precursor, NACP, PARK1, PARK4, PD1)
Alpha-synuclein is present in brain tissue and studies implicate the protein in Lewy body formation and Parkinson’s disease. This antibody will help to detect alpha-synuclein expression.

Suitable for use in Immunohistochemistry. Other applications not tested.

Recommended Dilution:
Immunohistochemistry (Paraffin): 1:20-1:40 for 1hr at 25°C.
Optimal dilutions to be determined by the researcher.

Positive Control:
Posterior cingulated gyrus, lewy body and neurophil staining.

Storage and Stability:
May be stored at 4°C for short-term only. Aliquot to avoid repeated freezing and thawing. Store at -20°C. Aliquots are stable for 12 months. For maximum recovery of product, centrifuge the original vial after thawing and prior to removing the cap.
1ml-20°CBlue IceMouse
Not determined
Recombinant protein representing most of the full-length alpha synuclein molecule.
Supplied as a liquid in 15mM sodium azide.
Recognizes human Alpha Synuclein. Does not recognize beta synuclein.
Intended for research use only. Not for use in human, therapeutic, or diagnostic applications.
