  • FunctionPlays an important role in the physiology of adrenergic neurons.
  • Tissue specificityMainly expressed in the brain and adrenal glands.
  • PathwayCatecholamine biosynthesis; dopamine biosynthesis; dopamine from L-tyrosine: step 1/2.
  • 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.

  • ab113 at 1/2000 dilution staining rat brain cells (ab29475) by immunocyctochemistry. The antibody was incubated with the tissue for 48 hours and then bound antibody was detected using a biotinylated donkey anti-sheep antibody. The image shows the staining of free-floating 50 micron brainstem sections, labelling A5cell groups. The antibody also labels fine varicosities of axons.

Thank you for your patience. I have received confirmation from the originator of the product and it seems that there is no specific data on whether the antibody recognizes all isoforms of histone H1, as we do not currently have access to the antigen...

Dear Sir: Both of these antibodies can be used for immunocytochemistry and immunohistochemistry. The difference is that the NB300-108 is sensitive enough to stain fibers in the cerebral cortex. The cost of these two antibodies is $175. We wou...
