5-HT (Serotonin) 2C Receptor Antibody

The ImmunoStar 5-HT2C receptor antiserum was quality control tested using standard immunohistochemical methods. The antiserum demonstrates strongly positive labeling of rat choroid plexus and hippocampus using indirect immunofluorescent and biotin/avidin-HRP techniques. Recommended primary dilutions are 1/500 – 1/1000 in PBS – Bn/Av-HRP technique. Intensification methods such as nickel will approximately double the dilution factor as … Read more

5-HT (Serotonin) 1A Receptor Antibody

The histochemical antibody for the 5-HT1A receptor is generated in a rabbit against a synthetic peptide sequence corresponding to amino acids 294-312 of the rat 5-HT1A receptor. The antiserum is provided as 100 µl of affinity-purified serum containing 1% BSA. Controls: The ImmunoStar 5-HT1A receptor antiserum was quality control tested using standard immunohistochemical methods. The … Read more

5-HIAA (5-Hydroxyindoleacetic Acid) Antibody

The antibody produces moderate labeling of raphe neurons in normal rat. In rats whose serotonergic system has been activated, staining intensity is increased to a maximum label. Recommended dilution of the antiserum is 1/4000-1/8000 for biotin-streptavidin/HRP technique. The specificity of the antiserum was evaluated using a model system of gelatin-indole plugs by a method similar … Read more
