This antibody is specific for the ~55 kDa DDC protein in Western blots of rat adrenal medulla.
DOPA Decarboxylase (aromatic L-amino acid decarboxylase, AADC; DDC) catalyzes the second reaction in the biosynthesis of catecholamines and serotonin (Waymire and Haycock, 2002; Berry et al., 1996; Haycock et al., 2003). It is also involved in the biosynthesis of trace amines. DDC antibodies can therefore be used as markers for dopaminergic, noradrenergic and serotonergic neurons in a variety of applications including depression, schizophrenia, Parkinson€™s disease and drug abuse (Kish et al., 2001; Zhu et al., 2000; Zhu et al., 1999).
