Ensure accurate, reproducible results in immunohistochemistry experiments with Thermo Scientific™ GFAP (Glial Fibrillary Acidic Protein), Rabbit Polyclonal Antibody.Glial Fibrillary Acidic Protein (GFAP) is specific to astrocytes (i.e., glial cells) and ependymal cells of the central nervous system.
Host Species: Rabbit
Species Reactivity: Human, Monkey, Cow, Sheep, Guinea Pig, Chicken, Mouse, Rat and Hamster. Others not known.
Epitope: Not determined
Immunogen: GFAP isolated from cow spinal cord
Molecular Weight: 51-52 kDa
Positive Control: Brain or astrocytoma
Cellular Localization: Cytoplasmic Ab-4 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.
