MA1-06701 detects GFAP in human samples.
MA1-06701 has sucessfully been used in Western blotting and immunohistochemistry procedures. By Western blot MA1-06605 detects a ~55 kDa protein representing GFAP.
The MA1-06701 immunogen is glial fibrillary acidic protein from brain.
Glial fibrillary acidic protein (GFAP) is a member of the class III intermediate filament protein family. It is heavily, and specifically, expressed in astrocytes and certain other astroglia in the central nervous system, in satellite cells in peripheral ganglia, and in non-myelinating Schwann cells in peripheral nerves. In addition, neural stem cells frequently strongly express GFAP. Antibodies to GFAP are therefore very useful as markers of astrocytic cells. In addition many types of brain tumor, presumably derived from astrocytic cells, heavily express GFAP. GFAP is also found in the lens epithelium, Kupffer cells of the liver, in some cells in salivary tumors and has been reported in erythrocytes.
