Western blot analysis was performed on tissues (40 ug lysate) of Mouse Cerebellum (Lane 1), Mouse Brain (Lane 2) and Rat Brain (Lane 3). The blots were probed with Anti-VAMP2 Rabbit Polyclonal Antibody (Product# PA1766, 0.1-1 ug/ml) and detected by chemiluminescence Goat anti-Rabbit IgG (H+L) Superclonal™ Secondary Antibody, HRP conjugate (Product # A27036, 0.4 ug/ml, 1:2500 dilution). A 13 kDa band corresponding to VAMP2 was observed across the tissues tested. Known quantity of protein samples were electrophoresed using Novex® NuPAGE® 12 % Bis-Tris gel (Product # NP0342BOX), XCell SureLock™ Electrophoresis System (Product # EI0002) and Novex® Sharp Pre-Stained Protein Standard (Product # LC5800). Resolved proteins were then transferred onto a nitrocellulose membrane with iBlot® 2 Dry Blotting System (Product # IB21001). The membrane was probed with the relevant primary and secondary Antibody following blocking with 5 % skimmed milk. Chemiluminescent detection was performed using Novex® ECL Chemiluminescent Substrate Reagent Kit (Product # WP20005).

PA1-766 detects vesicle associated membrane protein 2 (VAMP-2) from rat and mouse tissues.
PA1-766 has been successfully used in Western blot, immunofluorescence, and immunoprecipitation procedures. By Western blot, this antibody detects a 19 kDa protein representing VAMP-2 from rat brain whole protein extract.
The PA1-766 immunogen is a synthetic peptide corresponding to residues M(1) S A T A A T V P P A A P A G E G G(18) C of rat VAMP-2. This immunizing peptide (Cat. # PEP-101) is available for use in neutralization and control experiments.
The vesicle associated membrane proteins (VAMP) or synaptobrevins are calcium binding proteins specific to eukaryotes. VAMPs, along with synaptosomal associated protein of 25 kDa (SNAP-25) and syntaxin, form the core complex of soluble NSF attachment protein receptor (SNARE) proteins that interact with the soluble proteins N-ethylmaleimide-sensitive factor (NSF) and alpha-SNAP. These membrane associated proteins play a key role in the regulation of vesicle membrane fusion with the plasma membrane. The Clostridium tetani neurotoxin is a metalloprotease with specificity for VAMP. In Alzheimer and quote;s disease, VAMP levels of all isoforms appear to be significantly lowered. It is suggested that VAMP-2 is a resident protein of the insulin-sensitive glucose transporter type 4 (GLUT4) compartment and that it is required for GLUT4 vesicle incorporation into the cell surface in response to insulin.
