General description

Glial fibrillary acidic protein or GFAP is a type III intermediate filament protein that is found in the astrocytes. GFAP assembly has been implicated in mitotic remodeling of glial structures. Genetic mutations in GFAP have been associated with Alexander disease
Monoclonal Anti-Glial Fibrillary Acidic Protein is specific for GFAP in rats, pigs and humans. The antibody does not bind to vimentin. The product stains glial cells, astrocytes Bergmann gliomas and other glial tumors by indirect immunofluorescence (using alcohol-fixed or frozen sections).

Physical form

Solution in 0.01 M phosphate buffered saline, pH 7.4, containing 15 mM sodium azide.


Monoclonal Anti-Glial Fibrillary Acidic Protein antibody is suitable for use in western blot and indirect immunofluorescence 2.5-5 μg/mL using alcohol-fixed sections of rat brain/cerebellum). The antibody can also be used for immunoblot (approx. 50 kDa), immunohistochemistry (in paraformaldehyde-fixed, frozen rabbit brain sections) and immunocytochemistry.
