Synaptobrevin2 also known as Vamp2 is a major vesicle protein involved in fusion
Mouse monoclonal purified IgG
Cat. No.: 104 211C5
Amount: 50 µg
Price: $465.00
Cat. No. 104 211C5 50 µg purified IgG, lyophilized, fluorescence-labeled with Sulfo-Cyanine 5. Albumin was added for stabilization. For reconstitution add 50 µl H2O to get a 1mg/ml solution in PBS. Either add 1:1 (v/v) glycerol, then aliquot and store at -20°C until use, or store aliquots at -80°C without additives.
Reconstitute immediately upon receipt! Avoid bright light when working with the antibody to minimize photo bleeching of the fluorescent dye.

Background

Synaptobrevins/VAMPs represents a family of integral membrane proteins of 11-13 kDa with the N-terminal region exposed to the cytoplasm and a C-terminal transmembrane domain. Two isoforms were identified in the mammalian CNS, synaptobrevin 1 (VAMP 1 or p18-1) and synaptobrevin 2 (VAMP 2 or p18-2) that differ in their distribution within different brain regions.
Synaptobrevin 1 is highly conserved between vertebrates and invertebrates. It is a major constituent of synaptic vesicles and peptidergic secretory granules in all neurons examined so far. In addition, it is present on secretory granules of neuroendocrine cells. Low levels of synaptobrevin 2 are present in many other tissues where the protein resides on specialized microvesicles.
In non-neuronal cells the third isoform, cellubrevin (VAMP 3), is present where it is localized to an endosomal membrane pool.
Synaptobrevin/VAMP is an essential component of the exocytotic fusion machine, related to a larger protein family referred to as v-SNAREs. It is the sole target for tetanus and several of the botulinal neurotoxins which cleave the protein at single sites in the C-terminal portion of the molecule.
