Background for Tryptophan 5-hydroxylase 1; Tryptophan 5-hydroxylase 2

Tryptophan hydroxylase is the rate-limiting enzyme in the synthesis of serotonin(5-hydroxytryptamine, or 5HT). Tryptophan hydroxylase\atalyzes the biopterin-dependent monooxygenation of tryptophan to5-hydroxytryptophan(5HT), which is subsequently decarboxylated to form the neurotransmitter serotonin. Human tryptophan hydroxylase(TPH) is mapped to chromosome 11p15.3-p14 by in situ hybridization.

Applications Immunohistochemistry
Sample Wistar rat brain
Detection Fluorescence

"The goal was to identify the dorsal raphe in rat brains, an area rich in serotonergic neurons, so that I could determine double-label in that region. I had been using an AB from Abcam, but they stopped making it. Found this product with a google search, and the vendor had a fair return policy. Strong signal that identifies dorsal raphe; aqueductus alone is not sufficient landmark. Great for free floating sections fixed in 4% paraformaldehyde. Probably can be used at less than 1:500."
