Antigen/Purification: ExpandCollapse

Chickens were immunized with a synthetic peptide / keyhole limpet hemocyanin (KLH) conjugate. This synthetic peptide corresponded to a region near the Cterminus of this gene product, and was 100% conserved between the human (Q99259, NCBI), mouse (P48318, NCBI) and rat (NP_058703, NCBI) gene products. After repeated injections into the hens, immune eggs were collected, and the IgY fractions were purified from the yolks. These IgY fractions were then affinity-purified using a peptide column, the concentrations of the eluate adjusted to 100 µg/mL, and the preparation was filter-sterilized through a 0.45 µm filter.

  • 67 kDa glutamic acid decarboxylase
  • GAD-67
  • Glutamate decarboxylase 67 kDa isoform


Phosphate-buffered (10 mM) isotonic (0.9%, w/v) saline (“PBS,” pH 7.2) with sodium azide (0.02%, w/v) added as a preservative.

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.
