ZooMAb antibodies represent an entirely new generation of recombinant monoclonal antibodies.
Each ZooMAb antibody is manufactured using our proprietary recombinant expression system, purified to homogeneity, and precisely dispensed to produce robust and highly reproducible lot-to-lot consistency. Only top-performing clones are released for use by researchers. Each antibody is validated for high specificity and affinity across multiple applications, including its most commonly used application. ZooMAb antibodies are reliably available and ready to ship when you need them.Learn more about ZooMAb here.
Clone 2B23 is a ZooMAb rabbit recombinant monoclonal antibody that specifically detects Glutamate decarboxylase 2 (GAD65). It targets an epitope within 17 amino acids from the C-terminal region.
KLH-conjugated linear peptide corresponding to 17 amino acids from the C-terminal region of human Glutamate decarboxylase 2 (GAD65).
Anti-GAD65, clone 3B23 ZooMAb, Cat. No. ZRB1091, is a recombinant Rabbit monoclonal antibody that targets GAD65 and is tested for use in Affinity Binding Assay, Immunocytochemistry, Immunofluorescence, Immunohistochemistry, and Western Blotting.
Western Blotting Analysis: A 1:1,000 dilution from a representative lot detected GAD65 human and mouse brain tissue lysates.
Immunofluorescence Analysis: A 1:100 dilution from a representative lot detected GAD65 in rat cerebellum tissue sections.
Affinity Binding Assay:: A representative lot of this antibody bound human GAD65 peptide with a KD of 1 x 10-12 in an affinity binding assay.
Immunohistochemistry (Paraffin) Analysis: A 1:10-100 dilution from a representative lot detected GAD65 in human brain and rat brain tissue sections.
Immunocytochemistry Analysis: A 1:100 dilution from a representativelot detected GAD65 in Neuro-2a cells.
Note: Actual optimal working dilutions must be determined by end user as specimens, and experimental conditions may vary with the end user
Glutamate decarboxylase 2 (UniProt: Q05329; also known as EC:22.214.171.124, 65 kDa glutamic acid decarboxylase, GAD-65, Glutamate decarboxylase 65 kDa isoform) is encoded by the GAD2 (GAD65) gene (Gene ID: 2572) in human. GAD-65 a homodimeric peripheral membrane protein that is associated to cytoplasmic vesicles. It is produced primarily by pancreatic islet cells. It is expressed in human β cells; however, some expression has also been observed in and cells of islets. It is shown to be a major target autoantigen in type 1A diabetes. In neurons, it is present in cytosolic leaflet of Golgi membranes and presynaptic clusters. It is responsible for the conversion of glutamic acid to gamma-aminobutyric acid (GABA), the major inhibitory transmitter in higher brain regions. Two molecular forms of GAD have been described (65 kDa and 67 kDa) that display 64% amino acid homology and both forms are expressed in the CNS, pancreatic islet cells, testis, oviduct, and ovary. Between the two isoforms, GAD67 is responsible for over 90% of basal GABA synthesis and is produced at limiting levels in the brain. This ZooMAb recombinant monoclonal antibody, generated by our propriety technology, offers significantly enhanced specificity, affinity, reproducibility, and stability over conventional monoclonals.
