Background for Tyrosine 3-monooxygenase

Tyrosine hydroxylase is involved in the conversion of phenylalanine to dopamine. As the rate-limiting enzyme in the synthesis of catecholamines, tyrosine hydroxylase has a key role in the physiology of adrenergic neurons. Human TH gene contains 13 primary exons and spans approximately 8 kb. TH is in the 11p15.5 region.

Figure 1. IHC analysis of Tyrosine Hydroxylase using anti- Tyrosine Hydroxylase antibody (MA1100).
Tyrosine Hydroxylase was detected in paraffin-embedded section of rat brain tissues. Heat mediated antigen retrieval was performed in citrate buffer (pH6, epitope retrieval solution) for 20 mins. The tissue section was blocked with 10% goat serum. The tissue section was then incubated with 1μg/ml mouse anti- Tyrosine Hydroxylase Antibody (MA1100) overnight at 4°C. Biotinylated goat anti-mouse IgG was used as secondary antibody and incubated for 30 minutes at 37°C. The tissue section was developed using Strepavidin-Biotin-Complex (SABC)(Catalog # SA1021) with DAB as the chromogen.

Figure 2. Western blot analysis of Tyrosine Hydroxylase using anti- Tyrosine Hydroxylase antibody (MA1100).
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: rat brain tissue lysates.
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- Tyrosine Hydroxylase antigen affinity purified monoclonal antibody (Catalog # MA1100) 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 Tyrosine Hydroxylase at approximately 59KD. The expected band size for Tyrosine Hydroxylase is at 59KD.
