Gene Information

General description

Anti-GABA, rabbit polyclonal, recognizes GABA in rat thalamus and cerebellum. It is validated for use in immunohistochemistry on frozen sections.
Rabbit polyclonal antibody supplied as lyophilized undiluted serum. Recognizes GABA.
Recognizes GABA in rat thalamus and cerebellum.

Immunogen

GABA
Rat

Application


Frozen Sections (1:12,000-1:15,000, ABC detection or 1:3000-1:5000, PAP detection; see comments)

Warning

Toxicity: Standard Handling (A)

Physical form

Undiluted serum.

Reconstitution

Reconstitute the lyophilized antibody with 100 µl sterile distilled H₂O. For storage, dilute with sterile PBS or Tris buffer at dilutions no higher than 1:10. Reconstitute the entire contents of the vial; during shipment and handling portions of the lyophilized pellet may have become dislodged and may not be in the bottom of the vial. Following reconstitution, aliquot and freeze (-20°C). Stock solutions are stable for up to 6 months at -20°C. Avoid freeze/thaw cycles of solutions.

Analysis Note

Positive Control
Rat thalamus or cerebellum

Other Notes

Antibody specificity was examined in the rat thalamus and cerebellum. Glutaraldehyde is a necessary component of fixation for use with this antibody. Higher concentrations of glutaraldehyde (1%-2%) may be used as needed. The specificity of the antibody for GABA was evaluated using a competitive inhibition ELISA. A GABA conjugate control completely eliminated labeling, while 1000-fold excess of the following conjugates: alanine, aspartate, beta alanine, glutamate, glycine, taurine, and tyrosine did not inhibit the binding to the GABA conjugate control. Antibody should be titrated for optimal results in individual systems.
