  • Target

    • Function

      Plays an important role in the physiology of adrenergic neurons.
    • Tissue specificity

      Mainly expressed in the brain and adrenal glands.
    • Pathway

      Catecholamine biosynthesis; dopamine biosynthesis; dopamine from L-tyrosine: step 1/2.
    • Involvement in disease

      Defects 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.

    • AAV9 and AAVDJ8 transduce DA neurons and astrocytes of the substantia nigra

      10X objective representative images of SN from 6-week tissue immunostained for TH (cyan) to visualize viral GFP expression (native) in the SN pars compacta (white outline) and SN pars reticulata for AAV2/1 (A), AAVDJ8 (B), and AAV9 (C) injected brains. (E) AAV9 and (F) AAVDJ8 100X objective representative images immunostained for TH and S100β (red) within the SNpc. at 6-weeks post ICV. (H) Representative, three dimensional (3D) 40X objective montage image of clarified SN tissue from a AAVDJ8–GFP infected brain, immunostained for TH (cyan), GFAP (red) and GFP (green) in XYZ and XZ volumetric planes.

      TH = Tyrosine Hydroxylase. 

      Tyrosine Hydroxylase is detected using ab76442 at 1/200 dilution in frozen sections of mouse substantia nigra.

    • Immunohistochemistry (Formalin/PFA-fixed paraffin-embedded sections) analysis of adult mouse hippocampus tissue labelling Tyrosine Hydroxylase (red) with ab76442. Tissue was fixed with 4% paraformaldehyde. Green: GFP autofluorescence (under control of actin promoter).

    • Immunohistochemistry (Free Floating) analysis of the rostral ventral lateral medulla in adult mouse brain labelling tyrosine hydroxylase with ab76442 at a dilution of 1/1000. Tissue was fixed with 10% formalin.

    • Immunohistochemistry (Formalin/PFA-fixed paraffin-embedded sections) analysis of adult mouse hippocampus tissue labelling Tyrosine Hydroxylase (red) with ab76442. Tissue was fixed with 4% paraformaldehyde. Green: GFP autofluorescence (under control of actin promoter).

    • ab76442 staining Tyrosine Hydroxylase in murine brain tissue by Immunohistochemistry (Frozen sections).

      Tissue was fixed with paraformaldehyde, permeabilizd by Triton X-100 and blocked with 3% BSA for 12 hours at 4°C. Samples were incubated with primary antibody (1/500 in diluent) for 1 hour at 37°C. ab6753 HRP-conjugated rabbit anti-chicken polyclonal IgG (ab6753) (1/500) was used as the secondary antibody.
