Synaptosomal-associated protein 25 (SNAP-25) is a component of the trans-SNARE (t-SNARE) complex. SNAP-25 has been reported to account for the specificity of membrane fusion, and to directly execute fusion by forming a tight complex that brings the synaptic vesicle and plasma membranes together. SNAP-25 has been shown to inhibits both ATP-dependent and independent Ca2+-triggered release of glutamate from central nervous system (CNS) synaptosomal membranes. This indicates that SNAP-25 has a role not only in the formation of the synaptic vesicle-target v- and t-SNARE complex, but also in the final neurotransmitter release.Product Details

- SNAP-25 is a 206 amino acid protein with a molecular mass of 23 kD.
Tissue distribution: Mainly in the central nervous system, in neurons of the neocortex, hippocampus, piriform cortex, anterior thalamic nuclei, pontine nuclei, and granule cells of the cerebellum
Cellular distribution: Cytosol, golgi apparatus, and cell membrane
- SNAP-25 associates with proteins involved in vesicle docking and membrane fusion. It regulates plasma membrane recycling through its interaction with centromere protein F (CENPF).
- In adult tissue, SMI 81 visualizes synapse-rich areas of brain and retina. In developing brain and cell cultures, SMI 81 reacts with neuronal cell bodies and axons. It is useful as an early marker for developing neurons in cell culture.
