Rabbit antibody to beta synuclein (C-terminal domain): IgG


Catalogue No. R-1683-500
Description Beta-synuclein is a soluble cytoplasmic protein associated with synaptic vesicles and a member of the synuclein family. Mutations in alpha-synuclein cause early onset Parkinson's disease. Expression of beta synuclein may modulate alpha-synuclein aggregation found in Parkinson's disease.
Batch No. See product label
Unit size 500 ug
Antigen A synthetic peptide (AQEAAEEPLIEPLME-C) corresponding to human β-synuclein [99-113] in the C-terminal domain conjugated via additional C-terminal Cys to Diphtheria toxoid.
Antibody Type Polyclonal
Applications WB and IHC. A dilution of 1:500 to 1:1,000 is recommended for Western blot. -beta-synuclein is a soluble protein of 134 amino acids and detected with 17 kDa mobility by western blotting. By IHC the antibody detects synaptic sites in human brain formaldehyde-treated frozen tissue. Biosensis recommends optimal dilutions/concentrations should be determined by the end user.
Specificity Confirmed by WB using soluble mouse and human brain extracts, reactivity for major product diminished by peptide absorption. Does not detect alpha-synuclein as tested with recombinant protein and does not react with Lewy bodies in human Dementia with Lewy Bodies or Parkinson's disease brain tissue sections.
Species Against Human and mouse β-synuclein are highly conserved, so cross-reactivity with other species is expected.
Form Lyophilized from PBS, pH 7.4. Contains no preservative.
Reconstitution Reconstitute in 500 uL of sterile water. Centrifuge to remove any insoluble material.
Storage Lyophilized at 2-8C. After reconstitution, store at -20C in undiluted aliquots for up to 6 months. The antibody may be stored short term at 2-2-8C with an appropriate antibacterial agent. Avoid freeze-thaw cycles.
Expiry Date 12 months after purchase
