    Scientific background

    β-synuclein is a presynaptic protein that plays an important role in neuronal plasticity and synaptic vesicle regulation. The synuclein family includes three members: α, β and γ isoforms. The presynaptic proteins are detected in neocortex, hippocampus, striatum, thalamus, and cerebellum regions1,2. β-Synuclein has been shown to act as a negative regulator of α-synuclein aggregation both in vivo and in vitro1,2. Structure wise, the protein contains a highly conserved N-terminal domain which includes a repetitive amino acid motif, and a more divergent and highly acidic stretch at the C-terminal domain2,3.

    Studies have shown overexpressed mRNA levels of β-synuclein in Parkinson's disease suggesting that the protein has a valuable role in maintaining homeostasis in the disease pathology. In addition, studies have shown the action of β-synuclein as a neurodegeneration-inducing factor that can cause cell loss when expressed in rat brains1,2.

    β-synuclein is also implicated with dementia involving Lewy bodies. To date, two mutations in the protein, V70M and P123H, have been identified in the sporadic and familial disease3.

    Last update: 17/01/2019

    Anti-Beta-Synuclein Antibody (#APZ-036) is a highly specific antibody directed against an epitope of the rat protein. The antibody can be used in western blot analysis. It has been designed to recognize β-Synuclein from human, mouse, and rat samples. The antibody is specific for β-Synuclein. It will not cross-react with α-Synuclein.
