Mouse monoclonal antibody to Glial Fibrillary Acidic Protein (GFAP) [5C10]: IgG

$297.00USD


Catalogue No. M-1375-100
Description GFAP is a 50 kDa intra-cytoplasmic filamentous protein of the cytoskeleton in astrocytes. During the development of the central nervous system, it is a cell-specific marker that distinguishes astrocytes from other glial cells. GFAP immunoreactivity has been shown in immature oligodendrocytes, epiglottic cartilage, pituicytes, papillary meningiomas, myoepithelial cells of the breast and in non-CNS: Schwann cells, salivary gland neoplasms, enteric glia cells, and metastasizing renal carcinomas.
Batch No. See product label
Unit size 100 L
Antigen Purified GFAP from porcine spinal cord
Antibody Type Monoclonal
Isotype IgG1
Clone 5C10
Other Names Astrocyte; Glial fibrillary acidic protein; GFAP;
Accession P14136 GFAP_HUMAN; Q8WP16 Q8WP16_PIG;
Produced in Mouse
Applications Western Blotting (WB) and Immunocytochemistry (IC). A dilution of 1:5,000 is recommended for WB. Human GFAP has a predicted length of 432 residues and a MW of 50 kDa. A dilution of 1:500 is recommended for IC. This antibody works well on frozen sections, cells in tissue culture and on formalin fixed histological sections. Biosensis recommends optimal dilutions/concentrations should be determined by the end user.
Specificity The specificity of this antibody has been confirmed by WB.
Antibody Against Glial Fibrillary Acidic Protein
Cross-reactivity Human, Rat, Mouse, Bovine, Porcine. Predicted to react with other mammalian and avian species.

Form Lyophilised from PBS, pH 7.4, containing 3% trehalose and 0.05% sodium azide.
Reconstitution Reconstitute in 100 L sterile distilled water to obtain an antibody stock concentration of 1 mg/mL. Centrifuge to remove any insoluble material.
Storage After reconstitution of lyophilised antibody, aliquot and store at -20C for a higher stability. Avoid freeze-thaw cycles.
Expiry Date 12 months after purchase if unopened
