PA1-044 detects synapse-associated protein 97 (SAP97) from rat and human tissues. This antibody does not detect other synapse-associated protein family members.
PA1-044 has been successfully used in Western blot procedures. By Western blot, this antibody detects an ~140 kDa protein representing SAP97 from rat brain homogenate.
The PA1-044 immunogen is a synthetic peptide corresponding to residues E(16) E Y R S K L S Q T E D R Q L R S S(33) of human SAP97. This sequence is completely conserved in rat and mouse. PA1-044 immunizing peptide (Cat. # PEP-022) is available for use in neutralization and control experiments.
Synapse-Associated Protein 97 (SAP97/human homologue of Drosophila discs-large tumor supressor or HDLG) is one of a family of plasma membrane-associated proteins found in synaptic junctions. This is a novel, presynaptic membrane protein homologous to SAP90 and the Drosophila discs-large tumor supressor protein. SAP97 has three ~90 amino acid repeats called PDZ domains, a single interior SH3 domain, and a COOH-terminal guanylate kinase homology (GuK) domain that is enzymatically inactive. It is hypothesized that PDZ-domain interactions play a role in receptor and channel clustering which contributes to neuronal plasticity. SAP97 is believed to participate in the clustering of certain proteins, including N-methyl-D-aspartate (NMDA) receptors and Shaker-type potassium channels at the synaptic membrane. NMDA receptors and shaker-type potassium channels both share C-terminal sequence homology consisting of a threonine/serine-X-valine-COOH (T/SXV) motif. Other neuronal proteins that share this motif (beta-1 adrenergic receptor, some serotonin receptors, some potassium channel subunits, and additional potassium channel subunits) may interact with SAP97 by binding to its PDZ domains. Neuronal nitric oxide synthase (nNOS), which lacks the T/SXV motif but which has its own PDZ domain, has been shown to associate with SAP97 in vitro through a pseudo-homotypic PDZ-PDZ interaction.
