Anti-Octopamine (conjugated ) antibody (ab37092)
- Product nameAnti-Octopamine (conjugated ) antibody
- DescriptionRabbit polyclonal to Octopamine (conjugated )
- SpecificityThis antibody targets conjugated octopamine. This antibody does not recognize free octopamine. Using a conjugate octopamine-protein carrier (Pc), antibody specificity was performed with an ELISA test by competition experiments with the following compounds: cross reactivity§ Octopamine-G-(Pc):1 Tyramine-G-(Pc):1/400 Naradrenaline-G-(Pc):1/10,000 Tyrosine-G-(Pc):1/>50,000 Dopamine-G-(Pc):1/100,000 G = Glutaraldehyde § Octopamine-G-(Pc) concentration/other conjugated catecholamine concentration at half displacement.

|IHC-Glut||IHC-Glut: 1/1000 - 1/5000. Fixation should be done with gluatraldehyde. The use of PFA with glutaraldehyde may improve staining results.|
|ELISA||ELISA: 1/1000 - 1/5000.|
|ICC||ICC: 1/1000 - 1/5000. Fixation should be done with gluatraldehyde. The use of PFA with glutaraldehyde may improve staining results.|
|WB||WB: 1/1000 - 1/2000. Predicted molecular weight: 1 kDa.
This antibody does not recognize free octopamine.
- RelevanceOctopamine was first discovered in the salivary glands of the octopus and has since been found to act as neurotransmitter, neurohormone and neuromodulator in invertebrates. Octopamine is a naturally occouring selective beta-3 adrenergic recepter agonist, which has been shown to exhibit strong lipolytic activity in fat cells. Octopamine also replaces norepinephrine in sympathetic neurons with chronic use of Monoamine Oxidase Inhibitors. It is responsible for the common side-effect profile of orthostatic hypotension with these agents.
