Scientific background

γ-synuclein is a 127 amino acids protein that belongs to the synuclein family of proteins. Synucleins are natively unfolded proteins, i.e. they have no secondary or tertiary structure in solution and hence these proteins are heat stable. The unusual biophysical properties of synucleins are rooted in their characteristic primary sequence that includes a highly conserved N-terminal domain with an 11- residue repeat and a less conserved acidic C-terminal domain that contains many proline residues1.

Mammalian γ-synuclein, encoded by BCSG1 (breast cancer specific gene 1), was discovered in a screen for breast cancer markers2. It is expressed in the peripheral nervous system in primary sensory neurons, sympathetic neurons, and motor neurons. It is also detected in the brain3, olfactory epithelium and breast/ovarian tumors4. Indeed, exogenous expression of this protein increases the invasive and metastatic potential of breast tumors5.

The roles of synucleins are not fully elucidated but this group of conserved and unusual proteins contributes to diverse disease processes spanning neurodegenerative disease and cancer and hence, studying the synucleins specific cellular activity is very tempting and promising.

Anti-Gamma-Synuclein Antibody (#APZ-037) is a highly specific antibody directed against an epitope of the rat protein. It can be used in western blot analysis. It has been designed to recognize γ-Synuclein from mouse and rat samples. The antibody will not recognize the protein from human samples.
