Involvement in diseaseDefects in TH are the cause of dystonia DOPA-responsive autosomal recessive (ARDRD) [MIM:605407]; also known as autosomal recessive Segawa syndrome. ARDRD is a form of DOPA-responsive dystonia presenting in infancy or early childhood. Dystonia is defined by the presence of sustained involuntary muscle contractions, often leading to abnormal postures. Some cases of ARDRD present with parkinsonian symptoms in infancy. Unlike all other forms of dystonia, it is an eminently treatable condition, due to a favorable response to L-DOPA. Note=May play a role in the pathogenesis of Parkinson disease (PD). A genome-wide copy number variation analysis has identified a 34 kilobase deletion over the TH gene in a PD patient but not in any controls.
Sequence similaritiesBelongs to the biopterin-dependent aromatic amino acid hydroxylase family.

ab112 staining Tyrosine Hydroxylase in mouse brain tissue sections by Immunohistochemistry (IHC-P - paraformaldehyde-fixed, paraffin-embedded sections). Tissue was fixed with formaldehyde and blocked with 1% BSA for 10 minutes at 21°C; antigen retrieval was by heat mediation in citric acid. Samples were incubated with primary antibody (1/800 in TBS/BSA/azide) for 2 hours at 21°C. A Biotin-conjugated goat anti-rabbit IgG polyclonal (1/250) was used as the secondary antibody.

ab112, at 1/750, staining tyrosine hydroxylase in mouse brain tissue (ab30151) by Immunohistochemistry (Frozen sections). Sections were PFA fixed, permeabilized in 0.3 Triton X-100 prior to blocking in 5% serum for 1 hour at 22°C and then incubated with ab112, for 16 hours at 22°C. Alexa fluor® 555 goat polyclonal to rabbit Ig (ab150078), diluted 1/1000, was used as the secondary antibody.
