Detects human beta -Synuclein in direct ELISAs and Western blots. In direct ELISAs, approximately 10% cross-reactivity with recombinant human (rh) alpha -Synuclein and less than 1% cross-reactivity with rh gamma -Synuclein is observed.

beta -Synuclein in Human Brain. beta -Synuclein was detected in immersion fixed paraffin-embedded sections of human brain (globus pallidus) using Sheep Anti-Human beta -Synuclein Antigen Affinity-purified Polyclonal Antibody (Catalog # AF5528) at 1.7 µg/mL overnight at 4 °C. Tissue was stained using the Anti-Sheep HRP-DAB Cell & Tissue Staining Kit (brown; Catalog # CTS019) and counterstained with hematoxylin (blue). Specific labeling was localized to the presynaptic terminals. View our protocol for Chromogenic IHC Staining of Paraffin-embedded Tissue Sections.
Detection of Human beta -Synuclein by Western Blot. Western blot shows lysates of human brain cortex, Alzheimer grey matter and white matter, and human cerebellum, brain cortex, and hippocampus tissue. PVDF membrane was probed with 1 µg/mL of Human beta -Synuclein Antigen Affinity-purified Polyclonal Antibody (Catalog # AF5528) followed by HRP-conjugated Anti-Sheep IgG Secondary Antibody (Catalog # HAF016). A specific band was detected for beta -Synuclein at approximately 19 kDa (as indicated). This experiment was conducted under reducing conditions and using Immunoblot Buffer Group 8.

beta -Synuclein is a 19 kDa, 134 amino acid (aa) cytoplasmic phosphoprotein that is a member of a family of small, highly conserved proteins, including synucleins alpha, beta, and gamma (synoretin), localized predominantly in presynaptic nerve terminals in the brain. beta -Synuclein associates with alpha -Synuclein, preventing it from aggregating. Abnormal alpha -Synuclein aggregates form filamentous inclusions (Lewy bodies) in neurodegenerative diseases including Parkinson's disease. Within the region used as an immunogen, human SNCB shares 99% aa identity with mouse and rat beta -Synuclein.
