SynGAP Blocking Peptide (#BLP-PZ032) is the original antigen used for immunization during Anti-SynGAP Antibody (#APZ-032) generation. The blocking peptide binds and ‘blocks’ Anti-SynGAP 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.
- Western blot analysis of rat (lanes 1 and 3) and mouse (lanes 2 and 4) brain membranes:
- Expression of SynGAP in mouse globus pallidus and rat lateral septumImmunohistochemical staining of perfusion-fixed frozen mouse and rat brain sections using Anti-SynGAP Antibody (#APZ-032), (1:200), followed by goat-anti-rabbit-AlexaFluor-488. A. SynGAP staining (green) in mouse brain is detected in neuropil (arrows) in the globus pallidus (GP) that is markedly stronger than in the striatum. B. SynGAP staining in rat brain sections shows lateral septum labeling of profiles of neuronal processes (horizontal arrows). Cell nuclei are stained with DAPI (blue).
