Glial Fibrillary Acidic Protein (GFAP) immunostaining (RED) of mixed cortical mouse brain cultures from Gerry Shaw's EnCorBio (Aves Labs, 1:500 dilution).  Secondary antibody (Texas Red goat anti-chicken IgY) is from Jackson ImmunoResearch).  The BLUE is DAPI staining of nuclei of all cells, including non-GFAP-positive cells.

Immunohistochemical staining of GFAP-positive radial glial cells in the periventricular zone of an e16 mouse brain.  Section was a vibratome, thick section (20 um) using a lightly-fixed (2% paraformaldehyde) mouse brain.  1˚ antibody (GFAP) was used at 1:500 dilution; 2˚ antibody (HRP-goat anti-chicken IgY) was used at 1:500 dilution.

Details

Chickens were immunized with recombinant GFAP (expressed in bacteria). After repeated injections, immune eggs were collected, the IgY fractions were purified from the yolks, and the IgY concentration adjusted to 20 mg/mL. This preparation was then diluted 1:10 with PBS containing bovine serum albumin as a carrier. Finally, the antibody preparation was filter-sterilized.

Quality Control

Quality assurance analysis was performed using immunohistochemistry (at a dilution of 1:5000) using fluorescein-labeled goat anti-chicken IgY (1:500 dilution, Aves Labs Cat.# F-1005) as the secondary reagent.

Storage

Store at 4°C in the dark. Under these conditions, the antibodies should have a shelf life of at least 12 months (provided they remain sterile). Do not freeze these antibodies unless you want to store them for longer periods of time. Note, however, that each time an antibody preparation is frozen, about half of its binding activity is lost.

NOTE

Aves Labs products are intended for use as research laboratory reagents. They are not intended for use as diagnostic or therapeutic reagents in humans.
