      DescriptionAnti-Glial Fibrillary Acidic Protein Antibody, clone GA5
      Alternate Names
      • GFAP
      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, Astrocyte culture.
      PresentationPurified mouse monoclonal IgG1 in buffer containing 0.02 M phosphate buffer, 0.25 M NaCl with 0.1% sodium azide, pH 7.6.
      Quality LevelMQ100
      ApplicationAnti-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.

      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.

      UniProt Number
      UniProt SummaryFUNCTION: SwissProt: P14136 # GFAP, a class-III intermediate filament, is a cell- specific marker that, during the development of the central nervous system, distinguishes astrocytes from other glial cells.
      SIZE: 432 amino acids; 49880 Da
      SUBUNIT: Isoform 3 interacts with N-terminus of PSEN1.
      SUBCELLULAR LOCATION: Cytoplasm. Note=Associated with intermediate filaments.
      DISEASE: SwissProt: P14136 # Defects in GFAP are a cause of Alexander disease [MIM:203450]. Alexander disease is a rare disorder of the central nervous system. It is a progressive leukoencephalopathy whose hallmark is the widespread accumulation of Rosenthal fibers which are cytoplasmic inclusions in astrocytes. The most common form affects infants and young children, and is characterized by progressive failure of central myelination, usually leading to death usually within the first decade. Infants with Alexander disease develop a leukoencephalopathy with macrocephaly, seizures, and psychomotor retardation. Patients with juvenile or adult forms typically experience ataxia, bulbar signs and spasticity, and a more slowly progressive course.
      SIMILARITY: SwissProt: P14136 ## Belongs to the intermediate filament family.
