Synapsin I is a neuron specific protein that is localized to nerve terminals. Synapsin Ia and Synapsin Ib are approximately 80,000 and 77,000 Daltons, respectively, and are collectively referred to as synapsin I. The synapsin protein is an excellent marker for synaptic terminals and it can be used to estimate synaptic density and or synaptogenesis. It is thought that synapsin I cross-links synaptic vesicles to the cytoskeleton and thereby limits the ability of these synaptic vesicles to move to active zones and fuse with the plasma membrane during exocytosis. In addition to their role in neurotransmission, the synapsins are also thought to play a role in synapse formation. The appearance of synapsin I immunoreactivity correlates precisely with the development of synapses in the CNS. The synapsin protein is an excellent marker for synaptic terminals and it can be used to estimate synaptic density and or synaptogenesis. The appearance of synapsin I was a precise indicator of synapse formation and that synapsin I immunocytochemistry provides a valuable tool for the study of synaptogenesis.
