Description

General description

Glial fibrillary acidic protein (GFAP) is intermediary filament present in astrocyte cells and is expressed in 10 different isoforms. It comprises of N-terminal head, central rod and C-terminal tail domains. GFAP is mapped to human chromosome 17q21.31.

Immunogen

purified GFAP from pig spinal cord.

Application

Anti-Glial Fibrillary Acidic Protein antibody, Mouse monoclonal has been used in immunocytochemistry and in immunofluorescence.

Monoclonal Anti-Glial Fibrillary Acidic Protein antibody is suitable for use in western blot and indirect immunofluorescence 2.5-5 μg/mL using alcohol-fixed sections of rat brain/cerebellum). The antibody can also be used for immunoblot (approx. 50 kDa), immunohistochemistry (in paraformaldehyde-fixed, frozen rabbit brain sections) and immunocytochemistry.

Physical form

Solution in 0.01 M phosphate buffered saline, pH 7.4, containing 15 mM sodium azide.

Biochem/physiol Actions

Glial fibrillary acidic protein or GFAP assembly has been implicated in mitotic remodeling of glial structures. Genetic mutations in GFAP have been associated with Alexander disease.

Microdeletion in glial fibrillary acidic protein (GFAP) gene locus is implicated in intellectual disability and facial dysmorphism in children. High levels of GFAP is associated with acute intracerebral haemorrhage.
