Immunogen is full-length human alpha-synuclein (UniProtKB – P37840) produced in E.Coli.

Chickens were immunized with recombinant human α-synuclein protein (expressed in bacteria). After repeated injections, immune eggs were collected, the IgY fractions were purified from the yolks, and the IgY concentration adjusted to 10 mg/ml. Finally, the antibody preparation was filter-sterilized.

Biological Significance: ExpandCollapse

Alpha-synuclein (SNCA), also known as PARK1, NACP, PARK4, is a member of the synuclein family, which also includes beta- and gamma-synuclein. Alpha-synuclein is a highly-conserved protein known to be abundant in neurons and especially presynaptic terminals where it serves multiple roles including regulation of synaptic vesicle trafficking and subsequent neurotransmitter release. Functionally, alpha synuclein has been implicated in synaptic plasticity (Liu 2004) and the assembly of snare complexes (Burre 2010) and it is known to be associated with various neuropathologies including Parkinson’s Disease, Lewy Body Dementia, and Alzheimer’s Disease, where it forms insoluble protein aggregates. Early studies of amyloid deposits in the brains of Alzheimer’s patients revealed two previously uncharacterized peptides in addition to the amyloid beta fragment (Ueda 1993), both of which were found to correspond to alpha-synuclein (SNCA). Later studies confirmed that aggregated alpha-synuclein proteins are present in brain lesions (Lewy bodies) that are hallmarks of neurodegenerative synucleinopathies and that alpha synuclein likely plays a role in the pathogenesis of Parkinson’s disease, Lewy body dementia, and Alzheimer’s disease among other neuropathologies.

Phosphate-buffered (10 mM) isotonic (0.9%, w/v) saline (“PBS,” pH 7.2) with sodium azide (0.02%, w/v) added as a preservative.

Store at 4˚C in the dark. Under these conditions, the antibody should have a shelf life of at least twelve months, provided they remain sterile. Do not freeze these antibodies unless you want to store them for longer periods of time. Note, however, that each time an antibody preparation is frozen, about half of its binding activity may be lost.
