β-Synuclein (SNCB) is present in the presynaptic neuron terminal. It comprises an imperfect KTKEGV sequence at the N-terminus as well as highly acidic and intrinsically disordered regions. SNCB shares sequence similarity with α-synuclein. The SNCB gene is mapped to human chromosome 5q35.2.
SNCB (AAH02902, 1 a.a. ~ 134 a.a) full-length recombinant protein with GST tag. MW of the GST tag alone is 26 KDa.
β-Synuclein (SNCB) may delay the α- synuclein (αS) fibril formation and inhibit its aggregation. SNCB and αS interact with lipid vesicles to form a high degree of α-helical structure. SNCB is implicated in Dementia with Lewy bodies (DLB), a neurodegenerative dementia.
