Western blot of rat cortical lysate showing specific immunolabeling of the ~15 kDa alpha synuclein protein phosphorylated at Ser129 in the first lane (-). Phosphospecificity is shown in the second lane (+) where the immunolabeling is blocked by the phosphopeptide used as antigen but not by the corresponding non-phosphopeptide (not shown).
DetailsAlpha-synuclein is a presynaptic neuronal protein that is thought to be involved in the formation of SNARE complexes. Most significantly, aggregated alphasynuclein is one of the major components found in the Lewy bodies that occur in Parkinson’s disease (PD) and other neurodegenerative disorders (Okochi et al., 2000). Mutation of the alpha-synuclein gene is associated with familial forms of PD (Newmann et al., 2002). Recent evidence suggests that phosphorylation of alpha-synuclein at Ser129 plays a role in the formation of inclusions in PD (Smith et al., 2005; Masliah et al., 2005).
