This affinity purified detects an ~400 kDa protein, corresponding to the apparent molecular mass of Bassoon on SDSPAGE immunoblots, in samples from mouse and rat origins. Additional bands between 97 and 400 kDa may also be detected.
Protein G purified
Test in a species/application not listed above to receive a full credit towards a future purchase.
WB: Detects a band of approximately 400 kDa (predicted molecular weight: 472.6 kDa). Additional bands between 97 and 400 kDa are also identified and are reported to be proteolytic degradation products of Bassoon. Optimal dilutions/concentrations should be determined by the end user. The observed molecular weight of the protein may vary from the listed predicted molecular weight due to post translational modifications, post translation cleavages, relative charges, and other experimental factors.

Alternate Names for Bassoon Antibody (SAP7F407)
bassoon (presynaptic cytomatrix protein)
Bassoon is a 420 kDa protein that is a localized at the presynaptic nerve terminals and is believed to play a role in the structural and functional organization of the synaptic vesicle cycle (1-3). Bassoon does not belong to any known protein families. It has been found in rat and mouse with sequence identity of the two proteins at 96% (1). The human BASSOON gene has recently been cloned and localized (3). Bassoon is predicted to contain two double-zinc fingers, three coiled-coil regions, and two polyglutamine domains (1). The polyglutamine domains in the C-terminus are of interest, since it is known that for some human proteins, such as Huntingtin, abnormal amplification of this region can cause late-onset neurodegeneration (1,3). Bassoon is concentrated at sites opposite to postsynaptic densities in synaptic terminals and in cultured neurons, it is found to colocalize with GABA (A) and glutamate (GluR1) receptors (2). Another presynaptic protein, Piccolo (4) was found to colocalize with Bassoon in cultured hippocampal neurons (1). These observations suggested that they serve specific functions at synaptic junctions and may be involved in organization of the cytoskeleton at the site of neurotransmitter release (1).
