Target

  • Function
    Catalyzes the production of GABA.
  • Sequence similarities
    Belongs to the group II decarboxylase family.
  • Post-translational
    modifications
    Phosphorylated; which does not affect kinetic parameters or subcellular location.
    Palmitoylated; which is required for presynaptic clustering.
  • Cellular localization
    Cytoplasm > cytosol. Cytoplasmic vesicle. Cell junction > synapse > presynaptic cell membrane. Golgi apparatus membrane. Associated to cytoplasmic vesicles. In neurons, cytosolic leaflet of Golgi membranes and presynaptic clusters.

  • ab85866 staining GAD65 in murine brain synaptosomes by Flow cytometry.
    Cells were homogenized and centrifuged then fixed in paraformaldehyde and permeabilized using PBS Tween. Size gating was used. Primary antibody used at 0.5µg/ml and incubated for 30 minutes at 24°C. The secondary antibody used was an undiluted, Alexa Fluor®488 conjugated goat anti-rabbit IgG.
