Goat anti Human GAPDH antibody
recognizes an epitope within the C-terminal (CT) region of glyceraldehyde-3-phosphate dehydrogenase (GAPDH), a ~36 kDa multifunctional protein whose main function is to catalyse the reversible oxidative phosphorylation of glyceraldehyde-3-phosphate, in conjunction with inorganic phosphate and nicotinamide adenine dinucleotide (NAD). This reaction is an important energy yielding step in carbohydrate metabolism.
GAPDH translocates to the nucleus under a variety of stressors, most of which are associated with oxidative stress, whereby it mediates cell death (Dastoor et al. 2001
). GAPDH binds to several proteins that are responsible for neurodegenerative diseases, such as amyloid precursor protein and Huntingtin (Burke et al. 1996

Applications of GAPDH antibody
|Immunohistology - Paraffin 1
- 1This product requires antigen retrieval using heat treatment prior to staining of paraffin sections.
Where this antibody has not been tested for use in a particular technique this does not necessarily exclude its use in such procedures. Suggested working dilutions are given as a guide only. It is recommended that the user titrates the antibody for use in their own system using appropriate negative/positive controls.
- Histology Positive Control Tissue
- Human tonsil
- Western Blotting
- AHP1064 detects a band of approximately 35kDa in human tonsil, mouse spleen and HeLa cell lysates.
