Alternative Name GFAP (GFAP Antibody Abstract)
Background Glial fibrillary acidic protein (GFAP) is a member of the class III intermediate filamentprotein family. It is heavily, and specifically, expressed in astrocytes and certain otherastroglia in the central nervous system, in satellite cells in peripheral ganglia, and in nonmyelinating Schwann cells in peripheral nerves. In addition, neural stem cells frequentlystrongly express GFAP. Antibodies to GFAP are therefore very useful as markers ofastrocytic cells. In addition many types of brain tumor, presumably derived fromastrocytic cells, heavily express GFAP. GFAP is also found in the lens epithelium,Kupffer cells of the liver, in some cells in salivary tumors and has been reported inerythrocytes. Alternate Names: anti-Astrocyte antibody, anti-Glial Fibrillary Acidic Protein antibody, anti-FLJ45472antibody. Related Diseases: Developmental CNS
Gene Symbol: GFAP
Gene ID 2670, 14580, 24387
Research Area Stem Cells, Cytoskeleton, Glia marker, Cell/Tissue Markers, Neurology
Application Notes Immunohistochemistry-paraffin and ELISA. A dilution of 1:500-1:1000 is recommended. This antiserum works superbly for staining of paraffin-embedded tissue sections fixed in formalin, frozen sections and cell cytospins. Proteinase-K pre-treatment of tissues has been shown to produce most specific pattern of staining with negligible background. Occasionally, antigen retrieval by microwave (heat retrieval of the epitope) can produce some non-specific staining. The optimal dilution should be determined by the end user.
Recommended dilutions: ELISA, Immunohistochemistry, Immunohistochemistry-Paraffin 1:500-1:1000
