Total cell lysate from HeLa (lane 1, negative control), U87-MG (lane 2) and tissue lysate from mouse brain (lane 3) (15 µg/lane) were resolved by electrophoresis (4-12% Bis-Tris gel), transferred to nitrocellulose membrane, and probed with 1:2,500 purified anti-GFAP (clone 2E1.E9) antibody, or 1:2,500, 1:10,000 and 1:25,000 Direct-Blot™ HRP anti-GFAP (clone 2E1.E9) antibody. Purified proteins were visualized using an HRP goat anti-mouse IgG secondary antibody (clone Poly4053) and chemiluminescence detection. Direct-Blot™ HRP anti-β-actin (clone 2F1-1) antibody was used as a loading control. Lane M is the MW ladder.

Description

GFAP is expressed exclusively in astrocytes in the central nervous system. The protein is a member of the intermediate filament family of proteins which form networks providing support and strength to cells. This antibody does not cross-react with other intermediate filaments such as vimentin, neurofilament proteins, desmin and others. More than 50 GFAP mutations have been identified to be associated with the Alexander disease.

Recommended Usage

Each lot of this antibody is quality control tested by Western blotting. For Western blotting, the suggested dilution is 1:2,500-1:25,000. The optimal dilution should be determined by titration for each individual assay of interest.

25 µl and 100 µl of Direct-Blot™ HRP antibody can be used for approximately 5 and 20 Western blots, respectively, at the recommended concentration/dilution.

Structure
Around 50 kD
Distribution

Only expressed in astrocytes in the central nervous system.

Function
Together with other proteins to form intermediate filaments which supports astroglial cells. Astroglial cells support and nourish cells in the brain and spinal cord. If brain cells are injured through trauma or disease, astroglial cells react by rapidly prodcing more GFAP protein.
