Detection of Human VAMP‑8 by Western Blot. Western blot shows lysates of HeLa human cervical epithelial carcinoma cell line. PVDF membrane was probed with 1 µg/mL of Goat Anti-Human VAMP‑8 Antigen Affinity-purified Polyclonal Antibody (Catalog # AF5354) followed by HRP-conjugated Anti-Goat IgG Secondary Antibody (Catalog # HAF019). A specific band was detected for VAMP‑8 at approximately 12 kDa (as indicated). This experiment was conducted under reducing conditions and using Immunoblot Buffer Group 8.
VAMP‑8 in Human Pancreas. VAMP‑8 was detected in immersion fixed paraffin-embedded sections of human pancreas using Goat Anti-Human VAMP‑8 Antigen Affinity-purified Polyclonal Antibody (Catalog # AF5354) at 1 µg/mL overnight at 4 °C. Tissue was stained using the Anti-Goat HRP-DAB Cell & Tissue Staining Kit (brown; Catalog # CTS008) and counterstained with hematoxylin (blue). Specific staining was localized to exocrine cell cytoplasm. View our protocol for Chromogenic IHC Staining of Paraffin-embedded Tissue Sections.

VAMP-8 (vesicle associated membrane protein 8; also endobrevin) is a 12 kDa member of the synaptobrevin family of proteins. It is a type IV transmembrane (TM) protein (i.e.- a type II TM protein whose C-terminus is predominately transmembrane) that is found in cells involved in vesicle release (platelets, mast cells and pancreatic acinar cells). It regulates exocytosis and decouples granule release from cytokine release. Human VAMP-8 is 100 amino acids (aa) in length. It contains a vSNARE coiled-coil homology region (aa 12-72) and a membrane-anchor domain (aa 76‑96). Over aa 1‑75, human VAMP-8 shares 93% aa identity with mouse VAMP‑2.
