Detection of Dopa Decarboxylase/DDC Mouse by Western Blot. Western blot shows lysates of Jurkat human acute T cell leukemia cell line. PVDF membrane was probed with 2 µg/mL of Human Dopa Decarboxylase/DDC Monoclonal Antibody (Catalog # MAB3564) followed by HRP-conjugated Anti-Mouse IgG Secondary Antibody (Catalog # HAF007). A specific band was detected for Dopa Decarboxylase/DDC at approximately 54 kDa (as indicated). This experiment was conducted under reducing conditions and using Immunoblot Buffer Group 1.

Background: Dopa Decarboxylase/DDC
Dopa decarboxylase (DDC), also known as aromatic amino acid decarboxylase, is a group II decarboxylase (1). The enzyme catalyzes the decarboxylation of aromatic L-amino acids to produce the corresponding amines. DDC produces the neurotransmitters dopamine and serotonin from L-Dopa and L-5-hydroxytryptophan, respectively. The inhibition of DDC could be used for the treatment of schizophrenia and Parkinson's disease (2).
