  • $695.00


Description :Rabbit Polyclonal Antibody

Species :

Tag :

Expression System:

Sequence :

Specificity :Recognizes the Tyrosine Hydroxylase (TH) protein

Cited Applications :WB, IF, IHC

Cross Reactivity :All mammals

Host / Isotype / Clone# :Rabbit, IgG

Immunogen :SDS-denatured rat tyrosine hydroxylase, purified from pheochromocytoma.

Stability :Store at 4oC (add 0.1% NaN3) for several months, and at -20oC for longer periods. For optimal storage, aliquot target into smaller quantities after centrifugation and store at recommended temperature. For most favorable performance, avoid repeated handling and multiple freeze/thaw cycles.

Sample Data :Western blot of 10 ug of rat caudate lysate showing specific immunolabeling of the ~60k Tyrosine Hydroxylase protein.

Scientific Background :Tyrosine hydroxylase (TH) is the rate-limiting enzyme in the synthesis of the catecholamines dopamine and norepinephrine. TH antibodies can therefore be used as markers for dopaminergic and noradrenergic neurons in a variety of applications including depression, schizophrenia, Parkinson’s disease and drug abuse (Kish et al., 2001; Zhu et al., 2000; Zhu et al., 1999). Tyrosine Hydroxylase antibodies can also be used to explore basic mechanisms of dopamine and norepinephrine signaling (Witkovsky et al., 2000; Salvatore et al., 2001; Dunkley et al., 2004).
