  • Function

    Conversion of dopamine to noradrenaline.
  • Pathway

    Catecholamine biosynthesis; (R)-noradrenaline biosynthesis; (R)-noradrenaline from dopamine: step 1/1.
  • Involvement in disease

    Defects in DBH are the cause of dopamine beta-hydroxylase deficiency (DBH deficiency) [MIM:223360]; also known as norepinephrine deficiency or noradrenaline deficiency. This disorder is characterized by profound deficits in autonomic and cardiovascular function, but apparently only subtle signs, if any, of central nervous system dysfunction.
  • Sequence similarities

    Belongs to the copper type II ascorbate-dependent monooxygenase family.
    Contains 1 DOMON domain.
  • Cellular localization

    Cytoplasmic vesicle > secretory vesicle lumen. Cytoplasmic vesicle > secretory vesicle > chromaffin granule lumen and Cytoplasmic vesicle > secretory vesicle membrane. Cytoplasmic vesicle > secretory vesicle > chromaffin granule membrane.

Merci beaucoup de votre réponse et de vous avoir pris le temps de remplir le questionnaire.

Effectivement le point qui saute à l'œilen regardant leprotocole, est la méthode d'extraction de la protéine et préparation du lysat. J'ai aussi discuté ce point avec une collègue. Je vous suggère donc d'utiliser un tampon avec des détergents pour pouvoir extraire effectivement les protéines et pour ne pas devoir avoir une étape aussi longe de sonication et d'homogénéisation.

Je vous recommande donc fortement de préparer un lysat avec un tampon NP-40 pour s'assurer de l'extraction des protéines du cerveau?
Voici la composition du tampon et protocole que je peux recommander:

Nonidet-P40 (NP40) buffer

150 mM NaCl
1.0% NP-40 (possible to substitute with 0.1% Triton X-100)
50 mM Tris-HCl pH 8.0
Protease Inhibitors

Preparation of lysate from tissues

Dissect the tissue of interest with clean tools, on ice preferably, and as quickly as possible to prevent degradation by proteases.
Place the tissue in round-bottom microcentrifuge tubes or Eppendorf tubes and immerse in liquid nitrogen to “snap freeze”. Store samples at -80°C for later use or keep on ice for immediate homogenization. For a ˜5 mg piece of tissue, add ˜300 μl lysis buffer rapidly to the tube, homogenize with an electric homogenizer, rinse the blade twice with another 2 x 300 μl lysis buffer, then maintain constant agitation (for example, on an orbital shaker) for 2 hours at 4°C.
Centrifuge for 20 minutes at 16,000 x g at 4°C in a microcentrifuge for 20 minutes. Gently remove the tubes from the centrifuge and place on ice. Transfer the supernatant to a fresh tube kept on ice. Discard the pellet.

Pour plus d'information, veuillez ne pas hésiter à nous recontacter ou aussi de consulter notre protocole en ligne: https://www.abcam.com/index.html?pageconfig=resource&rid=13045

J'espère que cette suggestion va résoudre le problème. N'hésitez pas à me recontacter si vous souhaitez discuter un de ces points en plus de détails. Veuillez aussi me tenir au courant de vos résultats. Je vous remercie de votre collaboration.

Je suis désolée d'apprendre que ab19353 ne vous donne pas de bons résultats en Western blot.

Veuillez trouver ci-jointlequestionnaire discuté au téléphone qui nous permet de regrouper le plus d'informations possible sur le protocole que vous avez utilisé avec cet anticorps.
Celui-ci nous permettra de vous fournir la meilleure assistance technique.

Si nous concluons que notre produit est fautif et ne fonctionne pas comme explicité par notre fiche technique, nous serons ravis de mettre en place l'envoi d'un tube de remplacement gratuit ou d'un remboursement (sous réserve d'une commande ultérieure de 180 jours).

Je vous remercie par avance de nous envoyer votre protocole.

Thank you for sending your protocol information. We haven't tested this antibody with perfusion-fixed or free floating tissue, but we generally recommend using an antigen retrieval method with formaldehyde-fixed tissue, as formaldehyde crosslinks proteins and the antibody binding sites can be masked. It is more difficult to perform heat-mediated retrieval with free-floating tissue, but you can try an enzymatic treatment with proteinase K or trypsin. We have some antigen retrieval protocols at the following link, just scroll down to the bottom of the page for enzymatic protocols- https://www.abcam.com/index.html?pageconfig=resource&rid=11488#3 I also recommend testing the secondary antibody with a different sheep primary antibody, to ensure that it is functional. I hope this information is helpful, but please let me know if you have further questions or concerns.
