  • Target

    • Relevance
      Noradrenaline (NA) is a catecholamine neurotransmitter at postganglionic sympathetic fibres, produced following a series of steps from the essential amino acid phenylalanine. Terminal postganglionic sympathetic fibres have varicosities (where NA is synthesised and stored) which form synapses with the effector organ. The adrenal medulla is a major source of catecholamines (such as NA and adrenaline), however, most of the NA produced in the adrenal medulla is converted into adrenaline. NA is key in the fight-or-flight response and also directly increases heart rate, energy release from fat, and muscle readiness.

    • ab8887 staining Noradrenaline (red) in rat smooth muscle cells from the aorta.

      Cells were transfected with conjugated Noradrenaline before being fixed and permeabilized with 0.1% Triton X-100 for 20 minutes. Samples were incubated with primary antibody at 1/500 dilution. A fluorescence-conjugated anti-rabbit IgG was used as the secondary antibody.

    Thank you very much for your reply.

    For ab6454, it looks like the antibody was tested with glutaraldehyde-perfused tissue sections. There is a link to "Immunohisto and cytochemistry" protocol at the very bottom of the datasheet- Read More

    Thank you very much for contacting us with your enquiry.

    I apologize for the confusion regarding these products. Both ab8887 and ab6454 are antibodies that target conjugated noradrenaline, instead of free noradrenaline. As a small molecule, N...
