General description

Glial fibrillary acidic protein (GFAP) is an intermediate-filament protein found in the astrocytes of CNS (central nervous system).{56,59} It is located on chromosome 17q21.

The antibody detects endogenous level of total GFAP protein.

Immunogen

Peptide sequence around aa. 423-427 (E-S-K-Q-E), according to the protein NP_002046.1

Biochem/physiol Actions

Glial fibrillary acidic protein (GFAP) regulates intermediate filament network dynamics, cell morphology and focal adhesions. It helps in maintaining myelination and stability of CNS (central nervous system) white matter architecture.

Features and Benefits

Evaluate our antibodies with complete peace of mind. If the antibody does not perform in your application, we will issue a full credit or replacement antibody. Learn more.

Target description

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.

Physical form

Solution in phosphate-buffered saline containing 0.02% sodium azide and 50% glycerol
