Background of Gfap

Glial fibrillary acidic protein (GFAP) is an intermediate filament protein of 52Kda. GFAP gene is mapped to human 17q21. GFAP is a useful marker of astroglia in the brain. Mutations in GFAP, encoding glial fibrillary acidic protein, are associated with Alexander disease.

Antibody Validation

Boster validates all antibodies on WB, IHC, ICC, Immunofluorescence and ELISA with known positive and negative samples to ensure specificity and high affinity.

We are currently using anti-GFAP antibody (Monoclonal, G-A-5) MA1045 for pig tissue, and we are happy with the WB results. The species of reactivity given in the datasheet says human, pig, rat. Is it true that the antibody can work on dog tissues as well?

From what I have seen in literature brain thalamus does express GFAP. From what I have seen in, GFAP is expressed in dorsal motor nucleus of vagus nerve, brain thalamus, brain, kidney, fetal brain cortex, fetal brain, blood, among other tissues. Regarding which tissues have GFAP expression, here are a few articles citing expression in various tissues:
Blood, Pubmed ID: 12837269
Brain, Pubmed ID: 15489334
Brain, and Thalamus, Pubmed ID: 14702039

We bought anti-GFAP antibody (Monoclonal, G-A-5) for IF on kidney a few years ago. I am using rat, and We intend to use the antibody for IHC-P next. My question regards examining kidney as well as blood in our next experiment. Could you please give me some suggestion on which antibody would work the best for IHC-P?

I have checked the website and datasheets of our anti-GFAP antibody (Monoclonal, G-A-5) and it seems that MA1045 has been validated on rat in both IF and IHC-P. Thus MA1045 should work for your application. Our Boster satisfaction guarantee will cover this product for IHC-P in rat even if the specific tissue type has not been validated. We do have a comprehensive range of products for IHC-P detection and you can check out our website to find out more information about them.

My question regarding product MA1045, anti-GFAP antibody (Monoclonal, G-A-5). I was wondering if it would be possible to conjugate this antibody with biotin. I would need it to be without BSA or sodium azide. I am planning on using a buffer exchange of sodium azide with PBS only. Would there be problems for me to conjugate the antibody and store it in -20 degrees in small aliquots?

Verified Customer

Verified customer

Asked: 2017-10-05


We suggest not storing this antibody with PBS buffer only in -20 degrees. If you want to store it in -20 degrees it is best to add some cryoprotectant like glycerol. If you want carrier free MA1045 anti-GFAP antibody (Monoclonal, G-A-5), we can provide it to you in a special formula with trehalose and/or glycerol. These molecules will not interfere with conjugation chemistry and provide a good level of protection for the antibody from degradation. Please be sure to specify this in your purchase order.

Would MA1045 anti-GFAP antibody (Monoclonal, G-A-5) work on parafin embedded sections? If so, which fixation method do you recommend we use (PFA, paraformaldehyde, other)?

T. Jackson

Verified customer

Asked: 2017-07-13


It shows on the product datasheet, MA1045 anti-GFAP antibody (Monoclonal, G-A-5) as been validated on IHC-P. It is best to use PFA for fixation because it has better tissue penetration ability. PFA needs to be prepared fresh before use. Long term stored PFA turns into formalin, as the PFA molecules congregate and become formalin.
