DescriptionAnti-Tyrosine Hydroxylase Antibody, clone LNC1
Alternate Names
  • TH
  • 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.

Quality LevelMQ100
ApplicationDetect Tyrosine Hydroxylase using this Anti-Tyrosine Hydroxylase Antibody, clone LNC1 validated for use in IH, IH(P), IP & WB with more than 85 product citations.
Key Applications
  • Immunohistochemistry
  • Immunohistochemistry (Paraffin)
  • Immunoprecipitation
  • Western Blotting
Application NotesImmunohistochemistry(paraffin):
A 1:200-1:400 dilution of a previous lot was used in IH. 4% PFA fixed, frozen sections; 4% PFA fixed, paraffin sections 1:100 (Barrachina, M. et al., 2003). For paraffin sections Barrachina reported successful staining with microwave citrate acid antigen recovery, however other methods can likely be used as well.

A previous lot of this antibody was used in IP (Perez, 2002).

Optimal working dilutions and protocols must be determined by end user.
Biological Information
ImmunogenTyrosine Hydroxylase purified from PC12 cells
ConcentrationPlease refer to the Certificate of Analysis for the lot-specific concentration.
SpecificityRecognizes an epitope on the outside of the regulatory N-terminus. Recognizes a protein of approximately 59-61 kDa by Western blot. Does not react with the following on Western Blots: dopamine-beta-hydroxylase, phenylalanine hydroxylase, trytophan hydroxylase, dehydropteridine reductase, sepiapterin reductase or phenethanolamine-N-methyl transferase (PNMT).

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.
