ID Tag
Rb1544-130810-WS

Immunogen
A synthetic peptide from aa region 250-300 of rat GFAP conjugated to an immunogenic carrier protein was used as the antigen. The peptide is homologous in mouse and rat.

Accession

Also known
Glial fibrillary acidic protein

Target
FUNCTION: 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.
Defects in GFAP are a cause of Alexander disease (ALEXD). 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.
SUBCELLULAR LOCATION: Cytoplasm. Note: Associated with intermediate filaments
Tissue expression: Expressed in the cortex and hippocampus. Expression decreases following acute and chronic corticosterone treatment; expressed in astrocytes, in satellite cells and in non-myelinating Schwann cells

Storage
Maintain the lyophilised/reconstituted antibodies frozen at -20░C for long term storage and refrigerated at 2-8░C for a shorter term. When reconstituting, glycerol (1:1) may be added for an additional stability. Avoid freeze and thaw cycles.

Expiry Date
12 months after reconstitution

Shipping
This item will be shipped to you at ambient temperature in a lyophilised form.

Rabbit antibody to GFAP (250-300) IHC-P on paraffin sections of rat cerebellum.
The animal was perfused using Autoperfuser at a pressure of 110 mmHg with 300 ml 4% FA and further post fixed overnight before being processed for paraffin embedding. HIER: Tris-EDTA, pH 9 for 20 min using Thermo PT Module.
Blocking: 0.2% LFDM in TBST filtered thru 0.2 µm.
Detection was done using Novolink HRP polymer from Leica following manufacturers instructions; DAB: Candela DAB chromogen from Osenses.
Primary antibody: dilution 1: 1000, incubated 30 min at RT using Autostainer.
Sections were counterstained with Harris Hematoxylin.
