The antibody has a proven maximum biotin-streptavidin/HRP staining at a 1/1000 - 1/2000 dilution in rat raphe nuclei. Optimal dilution will vary depending upon fixation, labeling technique and/or detection system; therefore, a dilution series is recommended.

The specificity of the antiserum was evaluated using a model system of gelatin-indole plugs by a method similar to published procedures (Shipper and Tilders, 1983). Results showed that the 5-HTP antibody dose dependently stained 5-HTP but did not stain any concentration of 5-HT or 5-HIAA.

The antiserum was also tested by pre-adsorption with indole/paraformaldehyde/BSA conjugates. Staining was completely blocked by pre-adsorption with 5-HTP conjugate and unaffected by 5-HIAA or 5-HT conjugate.

Photo Description: IHC image of neurons staining for 5-HTP in the raphe nucleus of the rat brainstem. The tissue was fixed with 4% formaldehyde in phosphate buffer, before being removed and prepared for vibratome sectioning. Floating sections were incubated at RT in 10% goat serum in PBS, before standard IHC procedure. Primary antibody was incubated at 1:2000 for 48 hours, goat anti-rabbit secondary was subsequently added for 1 hour after washing with PBS. Light microscopy staining was achieved with standard biotin-streptavidin/HRP procedure and DAB chromogen.
