Glutamate Decarboxylase 2 antibody | N-GAD65
Glutamate decarboxylase 2 is the 65 kDa isoform of glutamate decarboxylase, encoded by the GAD2 gene and predominantly expressed by nerve termini, as opposed to the 67 kDa isoform (GAD67), predominantly found in the cell body, and encoded by the GAD1 gene. Autoantibodies to Glutamate decarboxylase 2 are detected in autoimmune diseases, including Graves disease (Kallmann et al. 1997), Stiff Man Syndrome (Raju et al. 2005) and are most prevalent in patients with Type I diabetes mellitus or those at high risk of developing Type I diabetes (Petersen et al. 1994). The N-Terminal region of GAD65 is essential for targeting the enzyme to GABA-containing secretory vesicles (Shi et al. 1994).
Mouse anti Human Glutamate Decarboxylase 2 (N-Terminal) antibody, clone N-GAD65 recognizes GAD65 but does not recognize GAD67 (Hampe et al. 2001).
