Gamma-Synuclein Blocking Peptide (#BLP-PZ037) is the original antigen used for immunization during Anti-Gamma-Synuclein Antibody (#APZ-037) generation. The blocking peptide binds and ‘blocks’ Anti-Gamma-Synuclein primary antibody, this makes it a good negative reagent control to help confirm antibody specificity in western blot and immunohistochemistry applications. This control is also often called a pre-adsorption control.

- Expression of Gamma-Synuclein in rat hippocampusImmunohistochemical staining of perfusion-fixed frozen rat brain sections with Anti-Gamma-Synuclein Antibody (#APZ-037), (1:200), followed by goat anti-rabbit-AlexaFluor-488. A. Gamma-Synuclein immunoreactivity (green) appears in blood vessels (arrows). B. Pre-incubation of the antibody with Gamma-Synuclein Blocking Peptide (#BLP-PZ037), suppresses staining. Cell nuclei are stained with DAPI (blue). G = granule layer.
