The antigen is a peptide from the C-terminal region of human dopamine β-hydroxylase (DBH), conjugated to keyhole limpet hemocyanin (KLH).
The antibody is prepared from pooled sheep serum by affinity purification using a Sulfo-Link® column matrix to which the peptide immunogen was coupled.
Biological Significance: ExpandCollapse
DBH catalyzes the conversion of dopamine to norepinephrine and serves as a marker of noradrenergic cells. DBH antibodies and antibodies for other markers of catecholamine biosynthesis are widely used as markers for dopaminergic and noradrenergic 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). The expression of DBH is also elevated during stress (Sabban and Kvetnansky, 2001).
