Figure 2. Western blot analysis of Tryptophan Hydroxylase using anti-Tryptophan Hydroxylase antibody (MA1099).
Electrophoresis was performed on a 5-20% SDS-PAGE gel at 70V (Stacking gel) / 90V (Resolving gel) for 2-3 hours. The sample well of each lane was loaded with 50ug of sample under reducing conditions.
Lane 1: human Caco-2 whole cell lysate.
After Electrophoresis, proteins were transferred to a Nitrocellulose membrane at 150mA for 50-90 minutes. Blocked the membrane with 5% Non-fat Milk/ TBS for 1.5 hour at RT. The membrane was incubated with mouse anti-Tryptophan Hydroxylase antigen affinity purified monoclonal antibody (Catalog # MA1099) at 0.5 μg/mL overnight at 4°C, then washed with TBS-0.1%Tween 3 times with 5 minutes each and probed with a goat anti-mouse IgG-HRP secondary antibody at a dilution of 1:10000 for 1.5 hour at RT. The signal is developed using an Enhanced Chemiluminescent detection (ECL) kit (Catalog # EK1001) with Tanon 5200 system. A specific band was detected for Tryptophan Hydroxylase at approximately 51KD. The expected band size for Tryptophan Hydroxylase is at 51KD.

Background 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.
