Histamine
Description:
Histamine is a neurotransmitter in the central nervous system a well as a mast cell constituent. In addition, histamine is produced by endocrine cells (ECL-cells) in the oxynthic mucosa of the stomach.

Applications:
Suitable for use in Immunohistochemistry and Immunocytochemistry. Not suitable for use on samples fixed with aldehydes. Other applications not tested.

Recommended Dilution:
Immunohistochemistry: 1:1000-1:4000 on brain and stomach using PAP or ABC. Suggested fixative is 4% EDAC or EDAC + PFA.
Immunocytochemistry: 1:200-1:5000 (cultured cells 2H3 mastocytoma)
Note: Preabsorption of the antiserum with a histamine-BSA or histamine-ovalbumin conjugate (1-100ug/ml) completely abolished non-specific binding.
Optimal dilutions to be determined by the researcher.

Storage and Stability:
May be stored at 4░C for short-term only. Aliquot to avoid repeated freezing and thawing. Store at -20░C. Aliquots are stable for at least 12 months. For maximum recovery of product, centrifuge the original vial after thawing and prior to removing the cap.
