GFAP from human brain

Physical form

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


The product reacts specifically with GFAP and labels astrocytes, glial cells and glial cell derived tumors in immunohistochemical staining. The antibody reacts with glial specific antigen in alcohol or formalin-fixed, paraffin-embedded human or animal tissue sections.


Anti-Glial Fibrillary Acidic Protein antibody produced in rabbit is suitable for:
• immunohistochemical staining at a working dilution of 1:400 using rat brain sections
• immunohistochemical staining of human brain tumor tissue specimens to identify the cells expressing AQP4 (Aquaporin-4)
• immunofluorescence using brain section from mice
The antibody is suitable for immunohistochemistry at a working dilution of 1:80 using alcohol- and formalin-fixed, paraffin-embedded sections of human or animal brain tissue. It is also suitable for indirect immunoblotting at a working dilution of 1:500 using human brain extract blot and microarray.

Biochem/physiol Actions

The gene GFAP encodes an intermediate filament protein (50kDa) of mature astrocytes, which may be used as a marker for distinguishing astrocytes from other glial cells during development of the central nervous system. Defects in this gene causes Alexander disease. It is a rare disorder of astrocytes in the central nervous system.
