This antibody has little or no activity against Synapsin II.
Storage and reconstitution: when stored at -20°C or below, the lyophilized antibody should retain full activity for over one year. Reconstitute using 50 µL PBS, pH 7.4, to yield a 0.2 mg/mL solution. If storing at 0-4°C, add sodium azide to a final concentration of 2mM. For longer storage, divide the solution into aliquots and freeze at -20°C, avoiding freeze/thaw cycles.
SYN1 (synapsin 1) is a member of the synapsin gene family. Synapsins encode neuronal phosphoproteins that associate with the cytoplasmic surface of synaptic vesicles. Family members are characterized by common protein domains and are implicated in synaptogenesis and the modulation of neurotransmitter release, suggesting a potential role in several neuropsychiatric diseases. Synapsin 1 plays a role in regulation of axonogenesis and synaptogenesis. It serves as a substrate for several different protein kinases and phosphorylation may function in the regulation of this protein in the nerve terminal. Mutations in this gene may be associated with X-linked disorders with primary neuronal degeneration such as Rett syndrome. Alternatively spliced transcript variants encoding different isoforms have been identified.
