Targeting Tools: Anti-CRH/CRF

Anti-CRH/CRF, Cat. #AB-02 Corticotropin-releasing hormone/factor (CRH/CRF) is the principal neuropeptide involved in regulating the stress response. It stimulates ACTH release from the pituitary gland. When centrally administered to animals it produces somatic changes analogous to those seen in both depression and anxiety. In humans, it is capable of reproducing the hormonal changes which are characteristically …

Targeting Tools: Anti-basic FGF (FGF-2)

Anti-basic FGF (FGF-2), Cat. #AB-07, Cat. #AB-08 Basic Fibroblast Growth Factor (FGF-2) is a 155-amino-acid protein (154 amino acids in rat) that has wide-ranging effects in a variety of systems. FGF-2 (also known as basic FGF) can induce proliferation of fibroblasts, endothelial cells, chondrocytes, smooth muscle cells, melanocytes, and other cell types. FGF-2 also has …

Targeting Tools: Anti-Conjugated Glutathione

Anti-Conjugated Glutathione, Cat. #AB-T01 Glutathione is a small protein composed of three amino acids: cysteine, glutamic acid, and glycine. The primary biological function of glutathione is to act as a non-enzymatic reducing agent. Glutathione is also involved in detoxification. Anti-Conjugated Glutathione targets conjugated glutathione which is created by fixation in glutaraldehyde. Applications include ELISA and …

Targeting Tools: Anti-Conjugated Acetylcholine

Anti-Conjugated Acetylcholine, Cat. #AB-T02 Acetylcholine is a neurotransmitter found in both the peripheral nervous system (PNS) and central nervous system (CNS) in many organisms including humans. Anti-Conjugated Acetylcholine targets conjugated choline-glutaric acid which is created by fixation in glutaraldehyde. Applications include ELISA and immunohistochemistry.

Targeting Tools: Anti-Conjugated Dopamine

Anti-Conjugated Dopamine, Cat. #AB-T11 Dopamine is a neurotransmitter found in various areas of the central and peripheral nervous system. Dopamine and its agonists play an important role in cardiovascular, renal, hormonal, and central nervous system regulation. Anti-Conjugated Dopamine targets conjugated dopamine which is created by fixation in glutaraldehyde. Applications include ELISA, immunocytochemistry, immunohistochemistry, and immunoblotting.

Targeting Topics 07q1

Ablation of NK1 receptor bearing neurons in the nucleus of the solitary tract blunts cardiovascular reflexes in awake rats. Abdala AP, Schoorlemmer GH, Colombari E. Brain Res 1119(1):165-173, 2006. Cardiovascular function is largely controlled by the nucleus of the tractus solitarius (NTS). This work focuses on the baroreflex, cardiopulmonary chemoreflex, and arterial chemoreflex. Rats were …
