Antigen/Purification: ExpandCollapse

The antigen is a peptide from N-terminus region of human DOPA decarboxylase (DDC), conjugated to keyhole limpet hemocyanin (KLH).

The antibody is prepared from pooled rabbit serum by affinity purification using an AminoLink® Plus column matrix to which purified, recombinant bovine DDC was coupled.


Biological Significance: ExpandCollapse

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).
