Polyclonal Antiserum

Goat anti-Alpha-Synuclein antibody

Cat. No. RDI-ASYNUCabG   $315.00/0.25ml

-A goat antiserum to a synthetic peptide that corresponds to amino acids 116 - 131 of the C-terminus of the Parkinson disease Alpha-synuclein protein is currently available. The Alpha-synuclein gene was discovered on chromosome 4 and is responsible for early-onset autosomal dominant Parkinson’s disease. It is an abundant protein whose major site of expression is in the nervous system. Human ALPHA-synuclein is also known to be a precursor of the non- -amyloid component protein (NACP) of Alzheimer’s disease where one of its fragments associates amyloid deposits.

-The function of this gene product is currently unknown, but it is being shown to be associated with other neurodegenerative diseases, such as dementia with Lewy bodies and multiple-system atrophy. This antiserum has been shown to be immunoreactive to the ALPHA-synuclein immunizing peptide by ELISA. Currently, this antibody has been shown to immunolabel Lewy bodies in Parkinson brains using formalin-fixed, paraffin-embedded sections. This antibody should be a valuable tool for scientists who will be working to discover the function of this protein in normal individuals and its role in Parkinson’s and other neurodegenerative diseases.
