Abstract

SNAP-29 is expressed throughout the life cycle of fruit fly and exhibits wide tissue distribution patterns. Unlike other SNAP-25-like proteins (i.e., SNAP-25, SNAP-23/24, and SNAP-47) which primarily support exocytosis at the plasma membrane, SNAP-29 regulates various intracellular trafficking events, by partnering with proteins active in both exocytosis and endocytosis. Here we describe the protocol to localize SNAP-29 in early embryos, imaginal discs from third instar larva, and immortalized S2 cells via immunofluorescence microscopy.
