The antibody has a proven strong fluorescent staining at a 1/400 - 1/800 dilution and a proven strong biotin-streptavidin/HRP staining at a 1/2000 - 1/4000 dilution in rat hypothalamus.

Staining is completely eliminated by pretreatment of the diluted antibody with 10 µg/mL of arginine vasopressin. Pre-adsorption with as much as 100 µg/mL of oxytocin had no effect on immunolabeling.

Vasopressin Antibody on the cover of Science

Dark-field photomicrograph of the anterior hypothalamus of a hamster immunostained with antibodies to vasopressin, showing the paired suprachiasmatic nuclei (SCN) between the third ventricle and optic chiasm (top) and the magnocellular vasopressin cells (yellow fireworks) of the paraventricular nucleus, above which is the SCN. The SCN, the locus of the mammalian biological clock, can be identified as two oval structures at the base of the brain (toward title). See page 975. [Photographic image by Russell Foster]

Beautiful cells
We have used your Vasopressin antibody (Product ID: 20069) in many of our studies and have found in to be a very specific and clear antibody. The staining is great and the cells are beautiful.

We use a total 1:5000 concentration. It is mixed with 10% serum, 10% biotin diluted in 80% PBS-T and incubated for 48-72 hours at 4 degrees C. We used brain tissue from Thamnophis sirtalis (Red-sided garter snake).
