    Flow Cytometry: 2 ug/10^6 cells.

    Western blotting: 0.5-2 µg/mL , SDS-PAGE on Bis-Tris gel 4-12%, 5% beta-mercaptoethanol, primary antibody O/N incubation in 5% skim milk/TBST. Secondary is anti-mouse-HRP, 1/6000 dilution, 2h at room temperature. Blot developed on Li-Cor C-DiGit Scanner.

    IHC: Frozen or PEG embedded tissues tested (PEG embedding, see Klosen P et al (1993) J Histochem Cytochem. 41(3):455-63). Conditions tested: 1-10 µg/mL in PBS, 48 hours, followed by detection via directly conjugated fluorescent anti-mouse secondary. 

    Immunohistochemistry Protocol for Product Image 
    4% PFA perfused, formalin fume-fixed DRG tissues: Adult male rat was perfusion-fixed transcardially with 4% paraformaldehyde. The lumbar dorsal root ganglia were isolated and embedded into egg yolk medium, which was solidified in formalin fume. 30-µm-thick floated sections were prepared with a Vibratome. For pretreatment, the sections were thoroughly rinsed in 0.1M PBS (pH 7.6) and then incubated with a mixture of 0.5% H2O2 and 0.2% Triton X-100 for 30 min. Then, antigen retrieval was performed with 0.1M citrate buffer (pH=6.0) at 80 °C for 30 min. (Please note that without this step, we did not obtain any labeling). Then, the TRPV1 signal was detected using a 1:5000 dilution of the primary antibody in 2% normal horse serum (NHS) in PBS (16 h; RT), followed by a 1:500 dilution of the biotinylated secondary antibody (2 h in 2% NHS/PBS; RT) and then, the ABC Elite reagent (Vector; 1:1000 in Tris buffer; pH 7.6). The signal was visualized with Ni-DAB chromogen. The immunostained sections were rinsed in Tris buffer, mounted on microscope slides, air dried, counter-stained with cresyl violet, dehydrated and coverslipped with DPX mounting medium.

    Antibody not yet tested on paraffin-embedded sections. Other immunohistochemistry methods have not yet been tested but are expected to be reactive under correct conditions. Antigen recovery is suggested; the epitope is internal cytoplasmic and could be covered by internal proteins during fixation.

    ICC: 4% formaldehyde fixed cells tested; requires permeabilization step as antigen epitope is intracellular. Suggested primary antibody concentration: 1-2 µg/mL.

    Biosensis recommends optimal dilutions/concentrations should be determined by the end user.

  • Scientific Background The capsaicin receptor (VR1, TRPV1) is a ligand-activated non-selective calcium permeant cation channel involved in detection of noxious chemical and thermal stimuli. The receptor seems to mediate proton influx and may be involved in intracellular acidosis in nociceptive neurons. It is involved in mediation of inflammatory pain and hyperalgesia. Sensitized by a phosphatidylinositol second messenger system activated by receptor tyrosine kinases, which involves PKC isozymes and PCL. Activation by vanilloids, like capsaicin, and temperatures higher than 42 degrees Celsius, exhibits a time- and Ca2+-dependent outward rectification, followed by a long-lasting refractory state. Mild extracellular acidic pH (6.5) potentiates channel activation by noxious heat and vanilloids, whereas acidic conditions (pH less than 6) directly activate the channel. Can be activated by endogenous compounds, including 12-hydroperoxytetraenoic acid and bradykinin. Acts as ionotropic endocannabinoid receptor with central neuromodulatory effects. Triggers a form of long-term depression (TRPV1-LTD) mediated by the endocannabinoid anandamine in the hippocampus and nucleus accumbens by affecting AMPA receptors endocytosis (Ref: uniprot.org).

    Analysis by immunohistochemistry displaying the TrpV1-positive neurons (pseudounipolar ganglion cells, red arrows in enlargement) of dorsal root ganglia involved in pain sensation. Entire photo is presented in the inset image, and the elarged version is provided for detail. 

    4% paraformaldehyde-fixed, formalin-fumed, 30-µm-thick vibratome sections were used. The sections were treated with 0.1M citrate buffer (pH=6.0) at 80 °C for 30 min for epitope unmasking. Then, the TRPV1 signal was detected using a 1:5000 dilution of the M-1714-100, followed by the biotinylated anti-mouse secondary antibody and the ABC Elite reagent, using Ni-DAB as the chromogen. Tissues were counterstained with cresyl violet (lighter blue nuclei). The small compact nuclei surrounding ganglion cells (best seen around large unstained ganglion cells) correspond to satellite cells, the typical glial cells of ganglia.
