|Calculated MW||49880 Da|
|Other Names||Glial fibrillary acidic protein, GFAP, GFAP|
|Target/Specificity||This GFAP monoclonal antibody is generated from mouse immunized with GFAP recombinant protein.|
|Format||Purified monoclonal antibody supplied in PBS with 0.09% (W/V) sodium azide. This antibody is purified through a protein G column, followed by dialysis against PBS.|
|Storage||Maintain refrigerated at 2-8°C for up to 2 weeks. For long term storage store at -20°C in small aliquots to prevent freeze-thaw cycles.|
|Precautions||GFAP Antibody is for research use only and not for use in diagnostic or therapeutic procedures.|
|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.|
|Cellular Location||Cytoplasm. Note=Associated with intermediate filaments|
|Tissue Location||Expressed in cells lacking fibronectin.|

This 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. Alternative splicing results in multiple transcript variants encoding distinct isoforms.
