|Calculated MW||55621 Da|
|Purification||Antisera to rat tryptophan hydroxylase 2 were raised by repeated immunisations of rabbits with highly purified antigen. Purified IgG was prepared by affinity chromatography.|
|Immunogen||Synthetic phospeptide corresponding to an amino acid sequence within TPH2, which includes phosphorylated Ser19.|
|Shelf Life||12 months from date of reconstitution.|
|Other Names||Tryptophan 5-hydroxylase 2, 188.8.131.52, Neuronal tryptophan hydroxylase, Tryptophan 5-monooxygenase 2, Tph2, Ntph|
|Target/Specificity||ABD10991 specifically recognises the 55kDa Tryptophan Hydroxylase 2 (TPH2) protein, when phosphorylated at Ser19.Tryptophan Hydroxylase (TPH) is a rate-limiting enzyme which catalyses the 5-hydroxylation of tryptophan, to form the amino acid 5-hydroxytryptophan (5-HTP), in the first stage of the biosynthesis of the neurotransmitter serotonin (5-hydroxytryptamine/5HT). Mammalian TPH is encoded by two genes: TPH1 expressed in peripheral tissues e.g. skin and gut, and TPH2 primarily expressed in the brain. Studies have demonstrated the regulation/enhancement of TPH activity through phosphorylation by cAMP-dependent protein kinase (PKA) and Ca2+/calmodulin kinase II (CaMKII), the latter of which phosphorylates a Ser19 site within the regulatory domain of TPH2.|
