General description

Glucocerebrosidase is an enzyme having glucosylceramidase activity. Defect in lysosomal hydrolase glucocerebrosidase results in Gaucher disease. Mutation in GBA will retard or block the transport of GBA to endoplasmic reticulum. Anti-glucocerebrosidase (C-terminal) antibody can be used to incubate the SDS-PAGE gel. Anti-Glucocerebrosidase antibody reacts specifically with human GBA.

Immunogen

synthetic peptide corresponding to amino acids 517-536 of human glucocerebrosidase (GBA), conjugated to KLH. This sequence is identical in rat GBA and highly conserved in mouse GBA (single amino acid substitution).

Application

Anti-Glucocerebrosidase (C-terminal) antibody produced in rabbit has been used in
  • immunohistochemistry
  • immunoblot analysis

Anti-glucocerebrosidase (C-terminal) antibody can be used in western blotting and immunoblotting.

Biochem/physiol Actions

Glucocerebrosidase (GBA) activity is reduced in human with mutations in GBA gene and causes accumulation of glucosylceramide (GlcCer). Fibroblasts from patients with defined GBA mutations show either retarded or blocked transport of GBA in the endoplasmic reticulum. Mutations in the human GBA gene may contribute to the development of common age-related dementia known as dementia with Lewy bodies. Several studies indicate that mutations in the human GBA gene are associated with early-onset Parkinson disease.
