D. melanogaster octopaminergic neurons labeled with Tdc2-Gal4 of the abdominal nerve to the ovary

Notes

Passed. ABIN809182 labels octopaminergic neurons specifically and with no background.

Primary Antibody ABIN4889606
Secondary Antibody goat anti-rabbit AF542 conjugated antibody (Life Technologies)
Protocol
  • Dissect ovaries of D. melanogaster ETHR-Gal4/UAS-MCD8-GFP expressing GFP in octopaminergic neurons in cold Schneider’s Insect Medium (S2; Sigma Aldrich, S01416).
  • Transfer tissue to 2ml protein LoBind tubes (Eppendorf, 022431102) filled with S2 containing 2% paraformaldehyde (PFA) at RT.
  • Fix tissue for 55min at RT while nutating.
  • Wash tissue 4x 10min with 1.75ml PBS containing 0.5% Triton X-100 (PBST).
  • Remove PBST and add 200µl 5% goat serum (GS; Thermo Fisher Scientific, 16210064) in PBST per tube.
  • Incubate 1.5h at RT on a rotator.
  • Remove blocking solution.
  • Incubate with primary
    • rabbit anti-Tdc2 antibody (Tyrosine Decarboxylase 2) (C-Term) (antibodies-online, ABIN4889606, lot 13B1) diluted 1:200 in blocking solution.
    • mouse anti-GFP (Thermo Fisher Scientific) diluted 1:500 in blocking solution.
  • Incubate for 4h at RT followed by 36-48h at 4°C on a rotator.
  • Rinse tissue with 1.75ml PBST. Allow the tissue to settle to the bottom before removing the liquid.
  • Wash tissue 3x 30min with 1.75ml PBST.
  • Incubate with secondary 200µl secondary goat anti-rabbit AF542 conjugated antibody (Life Technologies) and goat anti-mouse AF488 conjugated antibody (Life Technologies, A11034) diluted 1:500 in blocking solution containing 0.5mg/ml DAPI.
  • Incubate for 4h at RT followed by 72h at 4°C on a rotator.
  • Rinse tissue with 1.75ml PBST. Allow the tissue to settle to the bottom before removing the liquid.
  • Wash tissue 3x 30min with 1.75ml PBST.
  • Add 1.75ml PBST containing 4% PFA at RT.
  • Fix tissue for 5h at RT while nutating.
  • Rinse tissue with 1.75ml PBST. Allow the tissue to settle to the bottom before removing the liquid.
  • Wash tissue 4x 15min with 1.75ml PBST.
  • Mount tissue on a poly-L-lysine (Sigma Aldrich, P1524-25MG) coated cover glass.
  • Dehydrate tissue by covering the cover glass for 10min each with 30%, 50%, 75%, 95%, 100%, 100%, and 100% EtOH.
  • Clearing using by covering the cover glass 3x 5min with xylene.
  • Add 7 drops of dibutyl phthalate in xylene (DPX) on top of the mounted tissue.
  • Seat cover glass face down gently onto a prepared slide with spacers.
  • Let the slide dry for 48h at RT in a hood before viewing.
Experimental Notes
  • Staining of ETHR-Gal4/UAS-MCD8-GFP expressing GFP in octopaminergic neurons was performed as previously described.

  • ABIN4889606 worked fantastically. It labeled octopaminergic neurons specifically and with no background. Pictures are below. The well-characterized neurons labeled with Tdc2-Gal4 of the abdominal nerve to the ovary described in Middleton et al. (2006) overlapped with ABIN4889606. Staining with ABIN4889606 was stronger than Gal4 labeling.
