Conformation-Specific Alpha-Synuclein Antibody for Research into Parkinson’s Disease

Introduction

In the brains of patients suffering from Parkinson's disease, misfolding and aggregation of native alpha-synuclein occurs, resulting in the formation of filamentous Lewy bodies. Aggregated alpha-synuclein can be detected by anti-alpha synuclein filament antibody (ab209530), which is a conformation-specific antibody.

Anti-alpha synuclein filament antibody [MJFR14-6-4-2] (ab209538):

  • Developed with experts in the field – Developed and tested in partnership with The Michael J Fox Foundation (MJFF).
  • Conformation-specific - Alpha-synuclein filaments/fibrils consisting of Lewy bodies are specifically labeled.
  • Specific, reproducible, and reliable - A recombinant rabbit monoclonal antibody produced using RabMAb® technology ensures reliability, reproducibility, and specificity of the supply.
  • Suitable for studying other synucleinopathies - This antibody can also be used in the study of other synucleinopathies such as multiple system atrophy (MSA) and dementia with Lewy bodies (DLB).
