Glutamate Decarboxylase 2 antibody
Encoded by the GAD2 gene, glutamate decarboxylase 2 is one of several forms of glutamic acid decarboxylase. Glutamate decarboxylase 2 is responsible for catalyzing the production of gamma-aminobutyric acid from L-glutamic acid. A pathogenic role for this enzyme has been identified in the human pancreas since it has been identified as an autoantibody and an autoreactive T cell target in insulin-dependent diabetes. GAD2 may also play a role in the stiff man syndrome. Alternative splicing results in multiple transcript variants that encode the same protein (provided by RefSeq, Oct 2008).
Mouse anti Human glutamate decarboxylase 2 antibody detects a band of 60 kDa. The antibody has been extensively validated for western blotting using whole cell lysates.
