Tyrosine hydroxylase (TH) catalyzes the rate-determining initial step in the biosynthesis of catecholamines such as dopamine, noradrenaline and adrenaline. Therefore the antibody is used to stain dopaminergeous and adrenergeous neurons as well as the chromaffine tissue of the adrenal medulla. Cell lines such as the PC 12 line, which is derived from a rat pheochromocytoma also, show positive reactions. In immunoblots of adrenal medulla tissue, the antibody recognizes a single protein band in the molecular weight range of 56 - 60 kD.
Purified tyrosine hydroxylase (EC 188.8.131.52) from a rat pheochromocytoma (2).
