General description

Glial fibrillary acidic protein is a class-III intermediate filament. GFAP is the main constituent of intermediate filaments in astrocytes and serves as a cell specific marker that distinguishes differentiated astrocytes from other glial cells during the development of the central nervous system.

Specificity

Reactivity with other species has not been determined.
Glial fibrillar acidic protein. On western blots of extracts from a human glioma cell line (U33CG/343MG), MAB360 recognizes a band at approximately 51 kDa corresponding to GFAP (Debus, 1983). By immunohistochemistry it recognizes astrocytes and Bergmann glia cells, glioma and glial cell derived tumors. Shows no cross-reactivity with vimentin.

Immunogen

Purified GFAP from porcine spinal cord.

Application

Anti-Glial Fibrillary Acidic Protein Antibody, clone GA5 detects level of Glial Fibrillary Acidic Protein & has been published & validated for use in IC, IH, IH(P) & WB with more than 65 product citations.
Immunocytochemistry:
A previous lot was used on cultured mammalian cells.

Immunohistochemistry(paraffin):
1:400-1:800 dilution from a previous lot was used on alcohol-fixed paraffin embedded sections of rat brain (cerebrum or cerebellum) and human brain.

Immunoblotting: A 1:1000 dilution of a previous lot was used.

Optimal working dilutions must be determined by the end user

Quality

Routinely evaluated by Western Blot on Mouse brain lysates.

Western Blot Analysis:
1:1000 dilution of this lot detected GFAP on 10 μg of Mouse brain lysates.
