Substance P in Human Spinal Cord. Substance P was detected in immersion fixed paraffin-embedded sections of human spinal cord using 8 µg/mL Human/Mouse/Rat Substance P Monoclonal Antibody (Catalog # MAB4375) overnight at 4 °C. Tissue was stained with the Anti-Mouse HRP-DAB Cell & Tissue Staining Kit (brown; Catalog # CTS002) and counterstained with hematoxylin (blue). Specific labeling was localized to the spinal cord dorsal horn. View our protocol for Chromogenic IHC Staining of Paraffin-embedded Tissue Sections.

Background: Substance P
Substance P (Neurokinin-1), is member of the tachykinin peptide family. Processing of preprotachykinin isoforms generates Substance P and other tachykinins. Active Substance P is an 11 amino acid peptide, RPKPQQFFGLM, that is identical across all mammalian species. Substance P is mainly secreted from C-type fibers of primary sensory afferent neurons after stimulation through protease-activated receptor 2 (PAR2). Substance P binds primarily to the neurokinin 1 receptor on neurons in the dorsal horn, transmitting pain signals through the central nervous system.
