Normal brain: immunohistochemical staining for Glial Fibrillary Acidic Protein. Note the intense staining of neuronal processes. Glial Fibrillary Acidic Protein: clone GA5

Glial Fibrillary Acidic Protein

glial-fibrillary-acidic-protein

Antigen Background

Glial fibrillary acidic protein (GFAP) is an intermediate filament protein of 52kD reported to be expressed in glial cells, for example, astrocytes and ependymal cells. In the peripheral nervous system, GFAP has been reported to be expressed in Schwann cells, enteric glial cells and satellite cells of human sensory ganglia and in neoplastic tissues GFAP has been reported to be expressed in astrocytomas and ependymomas.

Product Specific Information

When using GFAP-GA5 the heat induced epitope retrieval (HIER) technique may improve staining in some cases.

Disclaimer

Glial Fibrillary Acidic Protein is recommended for the detection of specific antigens of interest in normal and neoplastic tissues, as an adjunct to conventional histopathology using non-immunologic histochemical stains.
