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.

Parvalbumin

ABOUT THIS ANTIBODY

anti-Parvalbumin labels .

Parvalbumin is a calcium-binding albumin protein found in brain and muscle. This antibody has relatively sparse labelling in the larval zebrafish brain. It nicely labels the olfactory epithelium, olfactory sensory nerve processes and the olfactory nerves, neuromasts of the lateral line system, amacrine cells in the retina and a subset of purkinje cells in the cerebellum and the pituitary. Parvalbumin also labels neurons in the optic tectum at adult stages (Robra et al., 2016).

Calretinin

Calretinin

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.
