Synaptophysin encodes an integral membrane protein of small synaptic vesicles in brain and endocrine cells. Synaptophysin also binds cholesterol and is thought to direct targeting of vesicle-associated membrane protein 2 (synaptobrevin) to intracellular compartments. Mutations in synaptophysin are associated with X-linked mental retardation (XLMR) (provided by RefSeq, Aug 2011).
Mouse anti Human synaptophysin antibody detects a band of approximately 37 kDa. The antibody has been extensively validated for western blotting using brain lysates.
