An antiserum was raised in rabbits immunized with octopamine conjugated to thyroglobulin. The specificity of this antiserum for octopamine is shown by dot blot immunoassay analysis. The antiserum does not crossreact with dopamine, noradrenaline, and serotonin, but slight crossreactivity with the amine tyramine at high concentrations was observed. The tyramine crossreactivity could be eliminated by preabsorption with a tyramine‐glutaraldehyde‐BSA conjugate. Using this antiserum, we describe the… Expand
