It also acts on 5-hydroxy-LO-tryptophan and dihydroxy-L-Phenylalanine (DOPA). Human DDC (480aa, chromosome 7p11) is a homodimer in the native state. it requires pyridoxal phosphate as a cofactor. A 16 amino acid peptide sequence near the N-terminus of human DDC. Applications: ELISA: Use at 1ug/ml to coat plates and detect with antibodies (1;10,000-1:50,000). Note: Not suitable for Western Blot due to low MW (< 3kD). Storage and Stability: May be stored at 4 degrees C for short-term only. For long-term storage, store at -20 degrees C.
