Gene Symbol SNCA
Gene Full Name synuclein, alpha (non A4 component of amyloid precursor)
Background Alpha-synuclein is a member of the synuclein family, which also includes beta- and gamma-synuclein. Synucleins are abundantly expressed in the brain and alpha- and beta-synuclein inhibit phospholipase D2 selectively. SNCA may serve to integrate presynaptic signaling and membrane trafficking. Defects in SNCA have been implicated in the pathogenesis of Parkinson disease. SNCA peptides are a major component of amyloid plaques in the brains of patients with Alzheimer's disease. Four alternatively spliced transcripts encoding two different isoforms have been identified for this gene. [provided by RefSeq, Mar 2009]
Function May be involved in the regulation of dopamine release and transport. Induces fibrillization of microtubule-associated protein tau. Reduces neuronal responsiveness to various apoptotic stimuli, leading to a decreased caspase-3 activation. [UniProt]
Calculated MW 14 kDa
PTM Phosphorylated, predominantly on serine residues. Phosphorylation by CK1 appears to occur on residues distinct from the residue phosphorylated by other kinases. Phosphorylation of Ser-129 is selective and extensive in synucleinopathy lesions. In vitro, phosphorylation at Ser-129 promoted insoluble fibril formation. Phosphorylated on Tyr-125 by a PTK2B-dependent pathway upon osmotic stress.
Hallmark lesions of neurodegenerative synucleinopathies contain alpha-synuclein that is modified by nitration of tyrosine residues and possibly by dityrosine cross-linking to generated stable oligomers.
Ubiquitinated. The predominant conjugate is the diubiquitinated form (By similarity).
Acetylation at Met-1 seems to be important for proper folding and native oligomeric structure.

    Immunocytochemistry: Mixed Rat neuron-glial cultures stained with ARG10689 anti-alpha Synuclein antibody (red) and co-stained with monoclonal antibody to MAP2 (green). ARG10689 anti-alpha Synuclein antibody stains vesicular structures the perikarya and processes of the neurons in this image. Note that some of the neuronal perikarya contain much more alpha-synuclein than others. The blue channel shows the localization of DNA.

    Immunohistochemistry: Frozen section of Rat cerebellum stained with ARG10689 anti-alpha Synuclein antibody (red) at 1:3000 dilution and costained with ARG52312 anti-GFAP antibody (green) at 1:5000 dilution. DAPI (blue) for nuclear staining. (Sample preparation: Following transcardial perfusion of Rat with 4% paraformaldehyde, brain was post fixed for 24 hours, cut to 45 µM, and free-floating sections were stained with above antibodies.)

    The alpha synuclein protein is concentrated in presynaptic regions in the granular and molecular layers, while GFAP antibody stains the network of Bergmann and astroglial cells.
