 Product Note    Our ELISA Kit assays are dynamic research tools and sometimes they may be updated and improved. If the format of this assay is important to you then please request the current manual or contact our technical support team with a presales inquiry before placing an order. We will confirm the current details of the assay. We cannot guarantee the sample manual posted online is the most current manual.
 Other Notes    Small volumes of DDC elisa kit vial(s) may occasionally become entrapped in the seal of the product vial during shipment and storage. If necessary, briefly centrifuge the vial on a tabletop centrifuge to dislodge any liquid in the container`s cap. Certain products may require to ship with dry ice and additional dry ice fee may apply.
 Searchable Terms for DDC purchase    MBS005019 is a ready-to-use microwell, strip plate Sandwich ELISA (enzyme-linked immunosorbent assay) Kit for analyzing the presence of the Dopamine Decarboxylase (DDC) ELISA Kit target analytes in biological samples. The concentration gradients of the kit standards or positive controls render a theoretical kit detection range in biological research samples containing DDC. The ELISA analytical biochemical technique of the MBS005019 kit is based on DDC antibody-DDC antigen interactions (immunosorbency) and an HRP colorimetric detection system to detect DDC antigen targets in samples. The ELISA Kit is designed to detect native, not recombinant, DDC. Appropriate sample types may include undiluted body fluids and/or tissue homogenates, secretions. Quality control assays assessing reproducibility identified the intra-assay CV (%) and inter-assay CV(%).

 UniProt Comments for DDC    Function: Catalyzes the decarboxylation of L-3,4-dihydroxyphenylalanine (DOPA) to dopamine, L-5-hydroxytryptophan to serotonin and L-tryptophan to tryptamine. Variation in the synthesis of bioamines may be a factor contributing to natural variation in life span. Ref.4

Catalytic activity: L-dopa = dopamine + CO2.5-hydroxy-L-tryptophan = 5-hydroxytryptamine + CO2.

Cofactor: Pyridoxal phosphate.

Subunit structure: Homodimer.

Tissue specificity: Hypoderm isoform isexpressed only in hypodermal epithelium and the CNS isoform onlyin central nervous system. Ref.1 Ref.10

Developmental stage: Hypoderm isoform hashigh expression levels in hypoderm during late embryogenesis, late larval development, pupariation and adult eclosion. CNS isoform hasconstant expression level in CNS throughout the life cycle. Ref.10 Ref.11

Induction: By ecdysone. In larval epidermis, expression is rapidly induced. In adult epidermis expression responds to a pulse of hormone and there is a time lag between initial exposure and appearance of DDC. Ref.12

Polymorphism: Three common molecular polymorphisms (2 in the promoter region and Phe-12) account for 15.5% of the genetic contribution to variance in life span, the polymorphisms are maintained by balancing selection.

Sequence similarities: Belongs to the group II decarboxylase family.
