This antibody is predicted to react with bovine, canine, human, mouse and non-human primate based on 100% sequence homology.
This antibody is specific for the ~15 kDa alpha-synuclein protein phosophorylated at Ser129. Immunolabeling is blocked by the phosphopeptide used as the antigen but not by the corresponding dephosphopeptide.
Alpha-synuclein is a presynaptic neuronal protein that is thought to be involved in the formation of SNARE complexes. Most significantly, aggregated alpha-synuclein is one of the major components found in the Lewy bodies that occur in Parkinson and quote;s disease (PD) and other neurodegenerative disorders (Okochi et al., 2000). Mutation of the alpha-synuclein gene is associated with familial forms of PD (Newmann et al., 2002). Recent evidence suggests that phosphorylation of alpha-synuclein at ser129 plays a role in the formation of inclusions in PD (Smith et al., 2005; Masliah et al., 2005).
