Synaptophysin, also known as major synaptic vesicle protein P38, is encoded by the SYP gene in humans and is located on the short arm of the X chromosome. Synaptophysin is expressed in neuroendocrine cells as well as all neurons in the CNS that participate in synaptic transmission. Synaptophysin is a synaptic vesicle glycoprotein, and interacts with synaptobrevin. It has been implicated in X-linked mental retardation and can be used as a specific marker for cells of the adrenal medulla and pancreatic islets. As such, it can be used to identify tumors that are derived from those cells, including neuroblastoma, retinoblastoma, medulloblastoma, and others.Product Details

- 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 immunocytochemistry, a concentration range of 1.0 - 10 μg/ml is recommended. For immunohistochemistry on formalin-fixed paraffin-embedded tissue, 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
SP17 reacts with native, denatured and recombinant synaptic vesicle protein synaptophysin expressed in CHO cells. The antibody is particularly valuable for immunocytochemical studies of the brain due to its stability in formalin sections.
