Antigen/Purification: ExpandCollapse

The antigen is a peptide from the extracellular loop 2 (EL2) region of human dopamine transporter (DAT), conjugated to keyhole limpet hemocyanin (KLH).

The antibody is prepared from pooled rabbit serum by affinity purification using a SulfoLink® column matrix to which the peptide immunogen was coupled.

Biological Significance: ExpandCollapse

The dopamine transporter (DAT) is responsible for the reaccumulation of dopamine after it has been released. DAT 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). Levels of DAT protein expression are altered by chronic drug administration (Wilson et al., 1996).

100 µl in 10 mM HEPES (pH 7.5), 150 mM NaCl, 100 µg per ml BSA and 50% glycerol. Adequate amount of material to conduct 10-mini Western Blots.

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.
