Clone Host Grade Applications
Monoclonal Rat Supernatant B IH IC
The transmembrane dopamine transporter (DAT) is located on the presynaptic nerve terminal and is responsible for terminating dopaminergic transmission by transporting dopamine from the synaptic cleft into the dopaminergic neuron (reuptake). Dopaminergic pathways have been strongly implicated in reward and addiction, motivation, alcoholism, ADHD and degenerative motor diseases such as Parkinsonís, Huntingtonís and Chorea.
Catalog #D9020
ApplicationsSuitable for use in Western Blot, Immunohistochemistry and Immunocytochemistry. Other applications not tested.
Recommended DilutionWestern Blot: Recognizes diffuse band at ~70-85kD on extracts (20ug total protein) from human caudate, putamen and nucleus accumbens. Not recommended for use on rat.
Immunohistochemistry (4% paraformaldehyde fixed tissue): 1:1000-1:10,000; Care should be taken not to over-fix tissue. Perfusion is followed by less than 90 minutes post-fixation, then cryoprotect. For use on rat tissue, a rat PAP system or ABC detection to enhance sensitivity is recommended. Recommended secondary antibodies: adsorbed anti-rat.
Immunocytochemistry: 1:5000-1:10,000
Optimal dilutions to be determined by the researcher.
Positive ControlBrain (caudate, putamen and nucleus accumbens)
