P-synslash_81A_Purified_a-synuclein_Antibody_IHC_021715
IHC staining of purified anti-α-Synuclein Phospho (Ser129) antibody (clone P-syn/81A) on formalin-fixed paraffin-embedded diseased human brain tissue. Following antigen retrieval using 70% formic acid for 20 minutes at room temperature, the tissue was incubated with 1 µg/ml of the primary antibody overnight at 4°C. BioLegend´s Ultra-Streptavidin (USA) HRP kit (Multi-Species, DAB, Cat. No. 929901) was used for detection followed by hematoxylin counterstaining, according to the protocol provided. The image was captured with a 40X objective.

Description

α-synuclein is expressed principally in the nervous system, but it is also produced in other tissues, including  the skin. In the brain, the protein is primarily neuronal, but it is also present in glia. Neuronal α-synuclein is concentrated in presynapt   ic nerve terminals, interacts with plasma membrane phospholipids, and is also present in nuclei and mitochondria. At least three isoforms of α-synuclein are produced through alternative splicing. The most common isoform is a 140 amino acid-long transcript. Other isoforms includes, a-synuclein-126, lacking residues 41-54; and α-synuclein-112, which lacks residues 103-130. α-synuclein’s physiological role is poorly understood, but the protein has been implicated in regulating dopamine release and transport, synaptic vesicle clustering, and functioning as a SNARE-complex chaperone. α-synuclein fibrils are a major component of the intracellular Lewy bodies that are associated with Parkinson's disease, Lewy body dementia, and multiple system atrophy. α-synuclein is phosphorylated at low levels under normal physiological conditions whereas the majority of the protein is phosphorylated in Lewy bodies at S129.

Application

IHC-P - Quality tested
ICC, IHC-F, WB - Reported in the literature

Recommended Usage

Each lot of this antibody is quality control tested by formalin-fixed paraffin-embedded immunohistochemical staining. For immunohistochemistry, a concentration range of 1 - 2 µg/ml is suggested. It is recommended that the reagent be titrated for optimal performance for each application.

Application Notes

This antibody is effective in immunohistochemistry (IHC-P). Additional reported applications (for the relevant formats) include: Western blotting, immunohistochemisty on frozen tissue sections (IHC-F), and immunocytochemistry.

P-syn/81A is a mAb that is specific to alpha synuclein that has been phosphorylated on serine 129.
