The ImmunoStar serotonin (5HT) transporter was quality control tested using standard immunohistochemical methods. The antiserum demonstrates strongly positive labeling of rat raphe nuclei, hypothalamus, cortex and spinal cord using indirect immunofluorescent and biotin/avidin-HRP techniques. Recommended primary dilutions for these methods are 1/800 - 1/1,000 in PBS/0.3% Triton X-100 - Cy3 and 1/10,000 - 1/15,000 in PBS/0.3% Triton X-100 - Biotin/avidin-HRP.

The above image is of Serotonin Transporter positive fiber staining in rat cortex, cryostat sections, Cy3 (Jackson) detection.

By Western blot analysis using rat brain extracts of cortex, hypothalamus, midbrain, and hindbrain, the antibody specifically labels a single band. The western information is included as specificity information only.  Due to the difficulty in running westerns with this antibody, ImmunoStar does not warrant the western blot application.

Immunolabeling is completely abolished by pre-adsorption with synthetic rat 5HT transporter (602-622).
