      • Tyrosine Monooxygenase
      Background InformationTyrosine hydroxylase plays an important role in the physiology of adrenergic neurons. It is the first and rate-limiting enzyme involved in the biosynthesis of the catecholamines Dopamine and Norepinephrine from tyrosine. TH is, therefore, a useful marker for dopaminergic and noradrenergic neurons. The enzymatic activity of TH requires ferrous ions as cofactors and is believed to be regulated by phosphorylation. At least four isoforms of human TH have been identified which result from alternative splicing.
      Product Information
      • Positive Control: Brain (sympathetic nerve terminals) and adrenal gland tissue
      PresentationPurified mouse monoclonal IgG2a in buffer containing 0.02 M Phosphate buffer, 0.25 M NaCl, pH 7.6 with 0.1% sodium azide.
      ApplicationThis Anti-Tyrosine Hydroxylase Antibody, clone 2/40/15 is validated for use in IH, WB for the detection of Tyrosine Hydroxylase.
      Key Applications
      • Immunohistochemistry
      • Western Blotting
      Application NotesImmunohistochemistry:
      1:100-1:500. A previous lot of this antibody was used in immunohistochemistry.

      Western blot:

      Optimal working dilutions must be determined by end user.
      Biological Information
      ImmunogenPurified tyrosine hydroxylase (EC from a rat pheochromocytoma (2).
      ConcentrationPlease refer to the Certificate of Analysis for the lot-specific concentration.
      SpecificityTyrosine hydroxylase (TH) catalyzes the rate-determining initial step in the biosynthesis of catecholamines such as dopamine, noradrenaline and adrenaline. Therefore the antibody is used to stain dopaminergeous and adrenergeous neurons as well as the chromaffine tissue of the adrenal medulla. Cell lines such as the PC 12 line, which is derived from a rat pheochromocytoma also, show positive reactions. In immunoblots of adrenal medulla tissue, the antibody recognizes a single protein band in the molecular weight range of 56 - 60 kD.

      UniProt Number
      UniProt SummaryFUNCTION: SwissProt: P07101 # Plays an important role in the physiology of adrenergic neurons.
      COFACTOR: Fe(2+) ion.
      SIZE: 528 amino acids; 58524 Da
      TISSUE SPECIFICITY: Mainly expressed in the brain and adrenal glands.
      DISEASE: SwissProt: P07101 # Defects in TH are the cause of autosomal recessive Segawa syndrome [MIM:605407]; also known as DOPA-responsive dystonia. Typically, it begins in childhood or adolescence with progressive difficulty in walking and, in some cases, spasticity. Some cases present with parkinsonian symptoms in infancy and are referred to as autosomal recessive infantile parkinsonism.
      SIMILARITY: SwissProt: P07101 ## Belongs to the biopterin-dependent aromatic amino acid hydroxylase family.
