General description

Serotonin/5-HT (5-hydroxytryptamine) is a neurotransmitters present in the brain. Anti-Serotonin specifically stains enterochromaffin cells in formalin-fixed, paraffin-embedded sections of normal human appendix and serotonin-containing carcinoid tumors. In the central nervous system (CNS), the antiserum reacts with serotonin-containing fibers in perfusion-fixed, free-floating sections of rat brain.

Specificity

The antibody reacts with serotonin-containing fibers in paraformaldehyde perfusion-fixed, frozen sections of rat brain. The product specifically stains enterochromaffin cells in formalin-fixed, paraffin embedded sections of normal human appendix and serotonin-containing carcinoid tumors.

Immunogen

Serotonin creatinine sulfate complex conjugated with formaldehyde to BSA.

Application

Anti-Serotonin antibody has been used in immunocytochemistry.

Biochem/physiol Actions

Serotonin/5-HT, the midbrain raphe system controls mood, emotion, cognition and motor functions, circadian and neuroendocrine rhythms, like food intake, sleep and reproductive activity. It participates in natural reward-related physiology and behaviour, from feeding to sexual activity.

Physical form

Supplied as a liquid containing 15 mM sodium azide as preservative.

Storage and Stability

For continuous use, store at 2-8 °C for a maximum of one month. For extended storage freeze in working aliquots. Repeated freezing and thawing, or storage in "frost-free" freezers, is not recommended. If slight turbidity occurs upon prolonged storage, clarify the solution by centrifugation before use.
