Tyrosine Hydroxylase

Tyrosine Hydroxylase

Tyrosine Hydroxylase

ABOUT THIS ANTIBODY

Tyrosine Hydroxylase is an enzyme that catalyses the convertion of L-tyrosine to L-3,4-dihydroxyphenylalanine(L-DOPA) which is the precursor for the neurotransmitter dopamine. anti-TH labels dopaminergic neurons in the olfactory bulb, subpallium, preotic area, posterior tuberculum and locus coeruleus.

Rabbit anti-calretinin

ABOUT THIS ANTIBODY

anti-calretinin labels neurons expressing the calcium binding protein calretinin.

Calcium-binding preoteins contribute to calcium homeostasis by buffering intercellular calcium. This antibody labels distinct groups of neurons in the central and peripheral nervous system.
