Monoclonal Anti-Glial Fibrillary Acidic Protein (GFAP) (mouse IgG1 isotype) conjugated to Cy3 is a purified mouse monoclonal antibody conjugated to Cy3 reactive dye. It is derived from the hybridoma produced by the fusion of mouse myeloma cells and splenocytes from an immunized mouse. GFAP, in the central nervous system, is found in developing, normal, reactive and neoplastic astrocytes and ependymal cells. It is expressed in developing oligodendrocytes in the peripheral nervous system. GFAP is found in some Schwann cells, enteric glial cells, Müller glia of the retina, and the satellite cells of human sensory ganglia. It has been demonstrated in some non-glial cells as well.
The antibody reacts specifically with GFAP in immunoblotting assays and labels astrocytes, and chondrocytes of elastic cartilage in immunohistochemical staining. The antibody reacts with glial specific antigen in frozen or alcohol-fixed tissue sections.

Glial Fibrillary Acidic Protein (GFAP) is expressed in several glial-related intracranial neoplasms such as astrocytomas and to a variable extent in ependymomas, medulloblastomas, choroid plexus papillomas, gangliogliomas, mixed gliomas, hemangioblastomas, pineocytomas, pineoblastomas, pituitary adenomas, retinoblastomas, oligodendrogliomas and in a small minority of peripheral nerve sheath tumors (schwannomas and neurofibromas). It may also be found in pleomorphic adenomas and ovarian and testicular teratomas.
