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

Expected to cross-react with porcine, chicken, bovine, and rabbit.
The antibody reacts with GFAP from human, pig, chicken and rat. In tissue sections this antibody stains astrocytes and Bergman glia cells (Debus, E., 1983).

Immunogen

Purified Glial Fibrillary Acidic Protein (GFAP) from pig spinal cord (Debus, E., 1983).

Application

Anti-Glial Fibrillary Acidic Protein Antibody, clone GA5 is an antibody against Glial Fibrillary Acidic Protein for use in IC, IH, IH(P) & WB with more than 55 product citations.
Immunocytochemistry:
5 μg/mL of a previous lot was used.

Immunohistochemistry:
5 µg/mL

Immunoblotting:
Recognizes a 51kDa protein in reducing westerns of total brain lysates.

Optimal working dilutions must be determined by end user.

Previous studies have shown that haploinsufficiency of the splanchnic and septum transversum mesoderm Forkhead Box (Fox) f1 transcriptional factor caused defects in lung and gallbladder development and that Foxf1 heterozygous (+/-) mice exhibited defective lung repair in response to injury.

Recent studies suggest that adult pituitary stem cells may play a role in pituitary tumorigenesis. We sought to explore whether the Glial cell-line derived neurotrophic factor receptor alpha 2 (GFRα2), a recently described pituitary stem/progenitor marker, might be differentially expressed
