      Trade Name
      • Chemicon
      DescriptionAnti-Glial Fibrillary Acidic Protein (GFAP) Antibody
      Alternate Names
      • glial fibrillary acidic protein
      Background InformationGlial 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.
      Product Information
      • Mouse brain tissue, rat astrocytes, rat neurons.
      PresentationRabbit serum. Liquid. Contains no preservative.
      Quality LevelMQ100
      ApplicationAnti-Glial Fibrillary Acidic Protein (GFAP) Antibody is an antibody against Glial Fibrillary Acidic Protein (GFAP) for use in IC, IH, IH(P) with more than 65 product citations.
      Key Applications
      • Immunocytochemistry
      • Immunohistochemistry
      • Immunohistochemistry (Paraffin)
      Application NotesImmunohistochemistry(paraffin):
      Representative images from a previous lot.

      A 1:1,000 dilution of a previous lot was used in Immunocytochemistry.
      Biological Information
      ImmunogenPurified bovine GFAP
      ConcentrationPlease refer to the Certificate of Analysis for the lot-specific concentration.
      SpecificityRecognizes Glial Fibrillary Acidic Protein (GFAP).
      Species Reactivity
      • Bovine
      • Canine
      • Human
      • Rat
      Species Reactivity NoteHuman, rat, bovine and canine. It is expected that the antibody will react with most mammalian GFAP due to homology. Reactivity with other species has not been confirmed.
      Antibody TypePolyclonal Antibody
      Entrez Gene Number
      Entrez Gene SummaryThis gene encodes one of the major intermediate filament proteins of mature astrocytes. It is used as a marker to distinguish astrocytes from other glial cells during development. Mutations in this gene cause Alexander disease, a rare disorder of astrocytes in the central nervous system. An additional transcript variant has been described, but its full length sequence has not been determined.
      Gene Symbol
