Synaptobrevins, also known as VAMPs, along with syntaxins and the synaptosomal-associated protein SNAP25, form the protein complex that is involved with the docking and fusion of synaptic vesicles with the presynaptic membrane. Synaptobrevins have a molecular weight of 18 kD, and are also involved in the formation of the SNARE complexes. The synaptobrevins are degraded by the protein tetanospasmin, from the tetanus-causing bacterium Clostridium tetani, as well as botulinum toxin from Clostridium botulinum.Product Details
- Human, Mouse and Rat
- Antibody Type
- Host Species
- This antibody was raised against a crude synaptic preparation of post mortem human brain.
- Phosphate-buffered solution, pH 7.2, containing 0.09% sodium azide.
- The antibody was purified by affinity chromatography.
- 0.5 mg/ml
- Storage & Handling
- The antibody solution should be stored undiluted between 2°C and 8°C.
WB - Quality tested
IHC-P - Validated
ELISA, ICC - Reported in literature
- Recommended Usage
Each lot of this antibody is quality control tested by Western blotting. For Western blotting, the suggested use of this reagent is 1.0 - 10 µg per ml. For immunohistochemistry on formalin-fixed paraffin-embedded tissue sections, a concentration range of 1.0 - 10 µg/ml is suggested. It is recommended that the reagent be titrated for optimal performance for each application.
- Application Notes
SP10 reacts with native, denatured and recombinant synaptic vesicle proteins synaptobrevin/VAMP-1 (aa 1-118) and VAMP-2 expressed in a bacterial system (aa 33-96). The antibody is particularly valuable for immunocytochemical studies of the brain due to its stability in formalin sections.
