The antibody has 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.
Photo Description: IHC image of rat hypothalamus staining for vasopressin. 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 1:5000 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.

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).
