Name: Mouse anti-human Glial Fibrillary Acidic Protein (GFAP) Monoclonal Antibody
Description and applications: GFAP antibody stains astrocytes, glial cells, ependymal cells and their corresponding tumors. In the peripheral nervous system, Schwann cells, satellite cells, and enteric glial cells are stained. Weak staining of axons has been observed. Absorption studies show that this is caused by a cross-reaction with neurofilament protein. Ab-4 is particularly useful for distinguishing neoplasms of astrocytic origin from other neoplasms in the central nervous system by immunohistochemistry
Composition: anti-human GFAP rabbit polyclonal purified antibody fraction from rabbit anti-serum. Prepared in 10mM PBS, pH 7.4, with 0.2% BSA and 0.09% sodium azide.
Intended use : Immunohistochemistry (IHC) on paraffin embedded tissues. Not tested on frozen tissues or Western-Blotting
Immunogen: GFAP isolated from pig spinal cord
Species reactivity: In vitro diagnostics in humans. Not tested in other species
