Price: $375.00
Product ID : 22806



The antibody has a proven strong biotin-streptavidin/HRP staining at a 1/2000 - 1/4000 dilution in rat brainstem, cerebellum and adrenal medulla. 

The above image is of DBH positive neurons in rat brainstem,  vibratome sectioned, ABC / DAB detection.

Using Western blot of purified DBH the antiserum detects a triplet at approximately 72-74 kD. Optimal dilution will vary depending upon fixation, labeling technique and/or detection system; therefore, a dilution series is recommended.

Photo Description: IHC image of neurons staining for DBH in the rat brainstem. The tissue was fixed with 4% formaldehyde/0.05% glutaraldehyde in 0.1 M 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 1:4000 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.

DBH Antibody Worked Beautifully

Mouse hearts were perfused with PBS (pH 7.4) at RT, followed by cold fixative (4% paraformaldehyde + 0.2% picric acid in PBS). Tissues were fixed again for 2h at 4°C in cold 20% sucrose/PBS, and sectioned in a microtome. Slides was wrapped in aluminum foil and stored at −20°C.

Slide-mounted heart tissue sections were washed 3 x 5 min in 0.1M PBS, permeabilized with 0.4% Triton X-100 plus 0.5% BSA for 20 min. Tissues were then incubated overnight with DBH antibody (1:1000 dilution), washed four times with 0.1M PBS (10 min each), permeabilized with 0.4% Triton X-100 + 0.5% BSA, and incubated for 1.5h with a secondary antibody. After washing, labeled tissue sections were viewed under a confocal microscope system.

Labelled tissue sections showed clear labeling while the negative control sections (with our DBH antibody) showed only background fluorescence. This DBH antibody worked beautifully in our experiments!

Very nice antibody

We used 22806 in rat tissue.Brains were fixed using 4% paraformaldehyde, saturated in 30% sucrose and stored at -80. Brains were sectioned at 40 um using a freezing/sliding microtome and sections were stored in cryoprotectant at -20.
The antibody clearly labeled fiber innervation in the cortical areas and innervation was easily measured via stereology. Brains were incubated overnight at RT at 1:500 in TBST +1% Goat Serum after blocking in 10% Serum in TBST.
Vector biotinylated anti-rabbit was then used at a 1:500 dilution in TBST. After 1 hr ABC incubation, antibody was detected with DAB Nickel with a 10 minute development.

Very happy with the results

We used rabbit anti-bovine DBH (#22806) in an ICC Zenk protocol with sectioned zebra finch brain tissue and were very happy with the results. The antibody provided clear staining with minimal background. The antibody clearly labeled neuron bodies as well as tracks.

Our protocol followed Sockman & Salvante 2007. Zebra finch brains were fixed using 4% paraformaldehyde, saturated in 30% sucrose and stored at -80. Brains were sectioned at 40 um using a cryostat and sections were stored in cryoprotectant at -20.

Antibody Worked Very Well

We tried the rabbit anti-dopamine-beta-hydroxylase antibody in ferret tissues, more specifically on brainstem tissues. Ferrets were perfused with saline followed by 4% paraformaldehyde and postfixed for 12 hours.

We used 1:500 dilution of DBH antibody and stained with Alexa 594 as a secondary antibody. The citation of the antibody has been published in the following article:

Detected small fibers with very little background

Animals were briefly anesthetized with pentobarbital (200mg/kg) followed by transcardial perfusion with 200 ml heparinized saline and 500 ml Zamboni fixative. Brains were then removed and stored in 30% sucrose until further processing.


Brains were frozen and cut at 50 µm thick sections using a cryostat.

Free-floating sections were first washed with PBS and then pretreated with a solution of 50% methanol, 0.3% hydrogen peroxide in PBS for 1 hour.

Blocking Solution: 1% triton-X 100, 2% fetal bovine serum in .1 M PBS for at least 1 hour at room temperature.

Dilutent for primary and secondary antibodies: 0.5% triton-X 100, 2% fetal bovine serum in .1 M PBS at

Primary dilution 1:5000 overnight at 4°C
Secondary Alexa 488 (Life Technologies) 1:500 in dilutent for 1 hour

Sections were washed thoroughly in .1 M PBS following detection, coverslipped and mounted with Vectashield mounting medium (Vector Labs)

This antibody detected small fibers within the cortex, central amygdala and various nuclei of the thalamus and hypothalamus with very little background.

Note: The time which animals spend under anesthesia will affect the level of expression in the thalamus/hypothalamus regions.

I am interested in using the dopamine-beta-hydroxylase(DBH) antibody in owl brain slice. This is ImmunoStar product number 22806. Has your DBH antibody been tested in any avian species?
Question By Kristin

No answer found for this question.

I am interested in using this to identify noradrenergic neurons in a rat using indirect immunofluorescence. Will this antibody be suitable? Also, does it matter if the antibody is polyclonal or monoclonal?
Question By Edmund T.

No answer found for this question.

Does this antibody react to all of the neuron of a rat brain, or only a particular part of the neuron? (e.g. axon, cell body)
Question By Er-Yun

The DBH antiserum stains in DBH. DBH containing neurons stain positively. I have also seen sporadic fiber staining. We typically QC the aby in rat brainstem
