Mapping of synapsin II (SYN2) genes to human chromosome 3p and mouse chromosome 6 band F.


Synapsins are neuron-specific phosphoproteins of small synaptic vesicles encoded by two different genes. While the gene for synapsin I (SYN1) is on the X chromosome, we have now assigned the human and mouse synapsin II (SYN2) genes to autosomes. By using PCR primers derived from rat synapsin II cDNA sequences we were able to amplify homologous sequences of… (More)
