Alpha-Synuclein is a 140 amino acid protein that is implicated in Parkinson’s disease, Alzheimer’s disease, Lewy body dementia, and multiple system atrophy. It is mainly produced in the brain, but is also present at low levels in many other tissues. The protein contains 3 domains, a N-terminal amphipathic domain, a central hydrophobic domain which contains the NAC region (non-amyloid-beta component), involved in proetin aggregation, and a C-terminal proline-rich domain. At least 3 isoforms of alpha-Synuclein are generated by alternative splicing, the most common form being the full length 1-140.
Host:MouseClone: 4B12Isotype: IgG1Reactivity: Human; does not react with Mouse or Rat alpha-SynucleinImmunogen: The 4B12 Ab was raised against purified, E.coli produced human alpha-Synuclein. The epitope lies within aa 103-108 of alpha-SynucleinConcentration:1 mg/mLFormulation:PBS (with no preservatives). The Ab is purifiedApplications:The Ab is effective in immunoblotting (WB), immunohistochemistry (IHC) and ELISA.Working Dilutions:WB: 1/100 - 1/10.000 (predicted MW: 16 kDa)
