Product Notices

  1. Since applications vary, each investigator should titrate the reagent to obtain optimal results.
  2. Please refer to for technical protocols.
  3. Caution: Sodium azide yields highly toxic hydrazoic acid under acidic conditions. Dilute azide compounds in running water before discarding to avoid accumulation of potentially explosive deposits in plumbing.
  4. Source of all serum proteins is from USDA inspected abattoirs located in the United States.

The cytoskeleton is an array of highly ordered filaments that maintains the shape, structure, and functionality of cells. There are three major types of filaments: actin filaments, microtubules, and intermediate filaments. The distinctions among them are based on protein composition and arrangements. Glial fibrillary acidic protein (GFAP) is a 50 kDa component of the intermediate filaments and was originally identified in astrocytes. The overall structure of GFAP, which confirms its similarities to other intermediate filament proteins, indicates a central rod of about 130 amino acids flanked by coiled regions. GFAP has been extensively used as an immunohistochemical marker for tumors derived from astroglia.

This antibody is routinely tested by western blot analysis. Other applications were tested at BD Biosciences Pharmingen during antibody development only or reported in the literature.

Format Details
Down Arrow Up Arrow
Tissue culture supernatant is purified by either protein A/G or affinity purification methods. Both methods yield antibody in solution that is free of most other soluble proteins, lipids, etc. This format provides pure antibody that is suitable for a number of downstream applications including: secondary labeling for flow cytometry or microscopy, ELISA, Western blot, etc.
