Synapsin II

synapsin II, syn-2, synapsin 2
This gene is a member of the synapsin gene family. Synapsins encode neuronal phosphoproteins which associate with the cytoplasmic surface of synaptic vesicles. Family members are characterized by common protein domains, and they are implicated in synaptogenesis and the modulation of neurotransmitter release, suggesting a potential role in several neuropsychiatric diseases. This member of the synapsin family encodes a neuron-specific phosphoprotein that selectively binds to small synaptic vesicles in the presynaptic nerve terminal. The TIMP4 gene is located within an intron of this gene and is transcribed in the opposite direction. Mutations in this gene may be associated with abnormal presynaptic function and schizophrenia. Alternative splicing of this gene results in two transcripts. [provided by RefSeq, Jul 2008] (from NCBI)

Heggelund et al., Oslo, Norway. In J Physiol, Nov 2015
ABSTRACT: The synaptic vesicle associated proteins synapsin I (SynI) and synapsin II (SynII) have important functions in several types of synaptic short-term plasticity in the brain, but their separate functions in different types of synapses are not well known.
Responses of Cerambycidae and Other Insects to Traps Baited With Ethanol, 2,3-Hexanediol, and 3,2-Hydroxyketone Lures in North-Central Georgia.
Sweeney et al., Fredericton, Canada. In J Econ Entomol, Oct 2015
In north-central Georgia, 13 species of woodboring beetles (Coleoptera: Cerambycidae: Cerambycinae) were attracted to multiple-funnel traps baited with ethanol and one of the following pheromones: (1) racemic 3-hydroxyhexan-2-one; (2) racemic 3-hydroxyoctan-2-one; and (3) syn-2,3-hexanediol.

Furthermore, more than 200 males and females of the congener Xylotrechus rufilius Bates were attracted by racemic 2-hydroxyoctan-3-one, and inhibited by syn-2,3-octanediol.
Alterations in Brain Inflammation, Synaptic Proteins, and Adult Hippocampal Neurogenesis during Epileptogenesis in Mice Lacking Synapsin2.
Ekdahl et al., Lund, Sweden. In Plos One, 2014
Here, we evaluated brain inflammation, synaptic protein expression, and adult hippocampal neurogenesis in the epileptogenic (1 and 2 months of age) and tonic-clonic (3.5-4 months) phase of synapsin 2 knockout mice using immunohistochemical and biochemical assays.
Synapsins contribute to the dynamic spatial organization of synaptic vesicles in an activity-dependent manner.

Synapsins I and II are not required for insulin secretion from mouse pancreatic β-cells.

A new kinetic framework for synaptic vesicle trafficking tested in synapsin knock-outs.
Wesseling et al., Pamplona, Spain. In J Neurosci, 2011
The supply rate of vesicle trafficking depresses more rapidly in synapsin knock-outs; the phenotype can be fully explained by changing the value of the single parameter in the model that would specify the size of the local reserve pools.
Synapsin regulation of vesicle organization and functional pools.

Synapsin directs vesicles into the reserve pool, and synapsin II isoform has a primary role in this function.
[Natural products syntheses based on the biotransformation using biocatalyst].
Akita, In Yakugaku Zasshi, 2011
Asymmetric reduction of 2-methyl-3-keto ester with yeast gave the optically active syn-2-methyl-3-hydroxy ester, which was converted to natural product such as (-)-oudemansin B. Asymmetric hydrolysis of 3-acetoxy-2-methy esters possessing syn- or anti-structure afforded the optically active 3-hydroxy-2-methyl esters and 3-acetoxy-2-methy esters corresponding to the starting material.
