General description

Monoclonal Anti-Tyrosine Hydroxylase (mouse IgG1 isotype) is derived from the hybridoma produced by the fusion of mouse myeloma cells and splenocytes from an immunized mouse. Tyrosine hydroxylase (TH) RNA undergoes alternative splicing resulting in four isoforms of TH subunit protein in humans. The four human isoforms are TH-1 (55.6 kDa), TH-2 (56 kDa), TH-3 (58.1 kDa), and TH-4 (58.5 kDa). Only humans express all four isoforms.

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.


The antibody recognizes an epitope present in the N-terminal region (approx. aa 9-16) of both rodent and human tyrosine hydroxylase. Clone TH-2 reacts with the intact TH subunits.


rat tyrosine hydroxylase (TH).

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).
