MA5-12023 targets Glial Fibrillary Acidic Protein in IF, IHC (P), and WB applications and shows reactivity with Chicken, Human, Porcine, and Rat samples.
The MA5-12023 immunogen is glial Fibrillary Acidic Protein.
MA5-12023 was successfully used to detect astrocytes in E18 Sparague Dawley primary cortical cells.
Glial Fibrillary Acidic Protein (GFAP) is specific to astrocytes (i.e., glial cells) and ependymal cells of the central nervous system. Antibody to GFAP is useful in differentiating primary gliomas from metastatic lesions in the brain and for documenting astrocytic differentiation in tumors outside the CNS. Ab-6 stains astrocytes, glial cells, ependymal cells and their corresponding tumors. Many types of neural tumors such as neuroblastomas, Schwannomas, as well as extra-CNS tumors are not labeled.
