\[ \large \int_{-\infty}^{\infty} \dfrac{ \mathrm{d} x}{\Gamma(\alpha +x) \Gamma (\beta - x)} = \dfrac{2^{\alpha + \beta -2}}{\Gamma(\alpha + \beta -1)} \quad ; \quad \Re (\alpha + \beta) > 1\]

Prove the equation above without using the method of residues.

**Notation:** \( \Gamma(\cdot) \) denotes the gamma function.

I haven't tried the general question, but this special case does have an elementary solution.
