Synaptophysin antibody | SP15
Loss and atypical expression of synaptophysin is noted in conditions such as Huntindon's disease (Goto and Hirano 1990) and Alzheimer's disease (Masliah et al. 1989). Mutations in the synaptophysin gene have been identified and lead to a condition, Mental retardation, X-linked 96 (Tarpey et al. 2009).
Mouse anti human synaptophysin antibody, clone SP15 has been used for the detection of synaptophysin by immunofluorescence, immunohistochemistry and western blotting on murine (Vitry et al. 2009), marmoset (Ramirez et al. 2001), rat (Barr et al. 2004), lapine (Roher et al. 2000) and human tissues (Beach et al. 1997).
