The antigen is a native rat tyrosine hydroxylase, purified from pheochromocytoma.
The antibody is prepared from sheep serum by affinity purification using a column to which immunogen was coupled. The antibody is predominantly of the IgG1 subclass.
Biological Significance: ExpandCollapse
Tyrosine hydroxylase (TH) is the rate-limiting enzyme in the synthesis of the catecholamines dopamine and norepinephrine. TH antibodies can therefore be 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). TH antibodies can also be used to explore basic mechanisms of dopamine and norepinephrine signaling (Witkovsky et al., 2000; Salvatore et al., 2001).
