Tryptophan Hydroxylase Sheep anti-Human, Rat, Polyclonal, Invitrogen
Sheep Polyclonal Antibody
Manufacturer: Invitrogen PA14678
This antibody is predicted to react with wide variety of mammals based on 100% sequence homology, however it does not recognize TPH in rabbit tissues. This antibody is specific for the ~55 kDa TPH protein in Western blots of human dorsal Raphe nucleus. Immunolabeling has been demonstrated in rat brain extracts.Tryptophan hydroxylase (TPH) catalyzes the first step in the biosynthesis of serotonin and melatonin (Martinez et al., 2001). Thus expression of TPH can be used as an indicator of the localization of serotonin and melatonin in brain. In mammals, serotonin biosynthesis occurs predomitly in neurons which originate in the Raphe nuclei of the brain, and melatonin synthesis takes place within the pineal gland (Haycock et al., 2002) . Although TPH catalyzes the same reaction within the Raphe nuclei and the pineal gland, TPH activity is rate-limiting for serotonin but not melatonin biosynthesis (Martinez et al., 2001).
