Detection of Human Tryptophan Hydroxylase 1/TPH‑1 by Western Blot. Western blot shows lysates of AGS human gastric adenocarcinoma cell line. PVDF membrane was probed with 1 µg/mL of Goat Anti-Human Tryptophan Hydroxylase 1/TPH-1 Antigen Affinity-purified Polyclonal Antibody (Catalog # AF5276) followed by HRP-conjugated Anti-Goat IgG Secondary Antibody (Catalog # HAF019). A specific band was detected for Tryptophan Hydroxylase 1 at approximately 60 kDa (as indicated). This experiment was conducted under reducing conditions and using Immunoblot Buffer Group 8.
Tryptophan Hydroxylase 1/TPH‑1 in Human Brain. Tryptophan Hydroxylase 1/TPH-1 was detected in immersion fixed paraffin-embedded sections of human brain (substantia nigra) using Goat Anti-Human Tryptophan Hydroxylase 1/TPH-1 Antigen Affinity-purified Polyclonal Antibody (Catalog # AF5276) at 1 µg/mL for 1 hour at room temperature followed by incubation with the Anti-Goat IgG VisUCyte™ HRP Polymer Antibody (Catalog # VC004). Tissue was stained using DAB (brown) and counterstained with hematoxylin (blue). Specific staining was localized to neurons.

Tryptophan Hydroxylase 1/TPH‑1 in Rat Brain. Tryptophan Hydroxylase 1/TPH-1 was detected in perfusion fixed frozen sections of rat brain using Goat Anti-Human Tryptophan Hydroxylase 1/TPH-1 Antigen Affinity-purified Polyclonal Antibody (Catalog # AF5276) at 1.7 µg/mL overnight at 4 °C. Tissue was stained using the NorthernLights™ 557-conjugated Anti-Goat IgG Secondary Antibody (red; Catalog # NL001) and counterstained with DAPI (blue). Specific staining was localized to neurons.

Background: Tryptophan Hydroxylase 1/TPH-1
Tryptophan Hydroxylase 1 (TPH-1) is a 50‑60 kDa intracellular enzyme that belongs to the biopterin-dependent, aromatic amino acid hydroxylase family. It is expressed in gut enterochromaffin cells and pineal gland. TPH-1 catalyzes the hydroxylation of L-Trp, which is the rate-limiting step in serotonin biosynthesis. Human TPH-1 is 444 amino acids (aa) in length. It contains an N-terminal regulatory domain (aa 1‑98), a catalytic region (aa 99‑424), and a C‑terminal Leu-zipper tetramerization domain (aa 425‑444). TPH-1 is phosphorylated on Ser58, and subsequently binds to 14-3-3 proteins, resulting in activation. It functions as a noncovalent Fe-binding 230 kDa homotetramer. There are three potential splice variants. One shows a 29 aa substitution for aa 438‑444, a second shows a 50 aa substitution for aa 157‑444, and a third shows a 68 aa substitution for aa 1‑21. Over aa 102‑403, Human TPH-1 shares 95% aa identical with mouse TPH-1.
