|A synthetic peptide corresponding to the center region of the human GAPDH|
|0.2 μm filtered solution in PBS|
|This antibody was produced from a hybridoma resulting from the fusion of a mouse myeloma with B cells obtained from a mouse immunized with a synthetic peptide corresponding to the center region of the human GAPDH. The IgG fraction of the cell culture supernatant was purified by Protein A affinity chromatography.|
Glyceraldehyde 3-phosphate dehydrogenase (GAPDH or G3PDH) is an enzyme of about 37kDa that is consisdered as a cellular enzyme involved in glycolysis. It catelyzes the sixth step of glycolysis. Glyceraldehyde-3-phosphate dehydrogenase (GAPDH) is a pleiotropic enzyme that is overexpressed in apoptosis and in several human chronic pathologies. Its role as a mediator for cell death has also been highlighted. A recent report suggests that GAPDH may be genetically associated with late-onset of Alzheimer's disease. Besides, deprenyl, which has originally been used as a monoamine oxidase inhibitor for Parkinson's disease, binds to GAPDH and displays neuroprotective actions.
