General description

Tyrosine hydroxylase (TH) is encoded by the gene mapped to human chromosome 11p15. TH is a tetramer of four identical subunits, which is characterized with a regulatory, catalytic, and tetramerization domains. The enzyme utilizes tyrosine, tetrahydrobiopterin (BH4) and O2 as cosubstrates, and Fe2+ as a cofactor.

Immunogen

SDS-denatured rat tyrosine hydroxylase purified from pheochromocytoma.

Application

Anti-tyrosine hydroxylase antibody produced in rabbit has been used in western blot analysis and immunohistochemistry.

Biochem/physiol Actions

Tyrosine hydroxylase (TH) catalyzes the first rate limiting step in the biosynthesis of catecholamine neurotransmitter i.e. the conversion of L-tyrosine to L-dopa. Inhibition of TH by L-phenylalanine, might play a crucial role in phenylketonuria and block the synthesis of norepinephrine. Activity of TH can be regulated by phosphorylation. Decreased expression of TH is associated with various neuropsychiatric diseases such as schizophrenia and Parkinson′s disease (PD).

Target description

Tyrosine hydroxylase (TH) is involved in the conversion of phenylalanine to dopamine. It catalyzes the initial, rate-limiting step of the catecholamine biosynthetic pathway.
