Description: This FF26A monoclonal antibody reacts with human glyceraldehyde-3-phosphate dehydrogenase (GAPDH), a key component of glycolysis. This 36 kDa enzyme is constitutively expressed in all tissues albeit at different levels. Measurement of GAPDH levels is often performed as a control for protein loading in experiments assessing differential protein expression. The FF26A antibody is crossreactive to mouse GAPDH. Applications Reported: This FF26A antibody has been reported for use in western blotting. Applications Tested: This FF26A antibody has been tested by immunoblotting of cell lysates. This can be used at less than or equal to 1 μg/mL. It is recommended that the antibody be carefully titrated for optimal performance in the assay of interest. Purity: Greater than 90%, as determined by SDS-PAGE. Aggregation: Less than 10%, as determined by HPLC. Filtration: 0.2 μm post-manufacturing filtered.GAPDH (Glyceraldehyde-3-phosphate dehydrogenase) is a catalytic enzyme commonly known to be involved in glycolysis. GAPDH exists as a tetramer of identical 37-kDa subunits and catalyzes the reversible reduction of 1,3-bisphosphoglycerate to glyceraldehyde 3-phosphophate in the presence of NADPH. Apart from playing a key role in glycolysis, GAPDH is ubiquitously expressed and displays other activities unrelated to its glycolytic function. GAPDH is reported to be involved in the processes of DNA replication, DNA repair, nuclear RNA export, membrane fusion and microtubule bundling. Studies provide evidence of GAPDH playing an essential part in gene expression observed in apoptosis and as part of the cellular phenotype of age-related neurodegenerative diseases. Further, GAPDH is involved in other cellular processes ranging from membrane fusion, and neuronal apoptosis in cancer. GAPDH is reported to bind to a variety of other proteins, including the amyloid precursor protein, mutations in which cause some forms of Alzheimer′s disease (AD), and the polyglutamine tracts of Huntingtin, the protein product aberrant forms of which are causative of Huntington′s disease. Associations between GAPDH, actin and tubulin have also be reported. Since GAPDH is expressed at high levels in most tissues, it is useful as protein loading control in Western Blot analysis.
