Description

General description

Tyrosine hydroxylase plays an important role in the physiology of adrenergic neurons. It is the first and rate-limiting enzyme involved in the biosynthesis of the catecholamines Dopamine and Norepinephrine from tyrosine. TH is, therefore, a useful marker for dopaminergic and noradrenergic neurons. The enzymatic activity of TH requires ferrous ions as cofactors and is believed to be regulated by phosphorylation. At least four isoforms of human TH have been identified which result from alternative splicing.

Specificity

Recognizes an epitope on the outside of the regulatory N-terminus. Recognizes a protein of approximately 59-61 kDa by Western blot. Does not react with the following on Western Blots: dopamine-beta-hydroxylase, phenylalanine hydroxylase, trytophan hydroxylase, dehydropteridine reductase, sepiapterin reductase or phenethanolamine-N-methyl transferase (PNMT).

Immunogen

Tyrosine Hydroxylase purified from PC12 cells

Application

Detect Tyrosine Hydroxylase using this Anti-Tyrosine Hydroxylase Antibody, clone LNC1 validated for use in IH, IH(P), IP & WB with more than 85 product citations.

Immunohistochemistry(paraffin):
A 1:200-1:400 dilution of a previous lot was used in IH. 4% PFA fixed, frozen sections; 4% PFA fixed, paraffin sections 1:100 (Barrachina, M. et al., 2003). For paraffin sections Barrachina reported successful staining with microwave citrate acid antigen recovery, however other methods can likely be used as well.

Immunoprecipitation:
A previous lot of this antibody was used in IP (Perez, 2002).

Optimal working dilutions and protocols must be determined by end user.
