Our Anti-DOPA Decarboxylase rabbit polyclonal primary antibody from PhosphoSolutions is produced in-house. It detects bovine, human, mouse, and rat DOPA Decarboxylase and is antigen affinity purified from pooled serum. It is great for use in WB and IHC.

Anti-DOPA Decarboxylase Antibody
Bulk Order Anti-DOPA Decarboxylase Antibody
DOPA decarboxylase (aromatic L-amino acid decarboxylase, AADC; DDC) catalyzes the second reaction in the biosynthesis of catecholamines and serotonin (Waymire and Haycock, 2002; Berry et al., 1996; Haycock et al., 2003). It is also involved in the biosynthesis of trace amines. DDC antibodies can therefore be used as markers for dopaminergic, noradrenergic and serotonergic neurons in a variety of applications including depression, schizophrenia, Parkinson’s disease and drug abuse (Kish et al., 2001; Zhu et al., 2000; Zhu et al., 1999).
Antigen Affinity Purified from Pooled Serum
SDS denatured, recombinant bovine aromatic DOPA decarboxylase expressed in E. coli and purified from inclusion bodies.
Bovine, Human, Mouse, Rat
Storage at -20°C is recommended, as aliquots may be taken without freeze/thawing due to presence of 50% glycerol. Stable for at least 1 year at -20°C.
Prepared from pooled rabbit serum by affinity purification using an AminoLink® Plus matrix to which purified, recombinant bovine DDC was coupled.
