Target

  • Relevance
    This gene encodes one of several forms of glutamic acid decarboxylase, identified as a major autoantigen in insulin-dependent diabetes. The enzyme encoded is responsible for catalyzing the production of gamma aminobutyric acid from L glutamic acid. A pathogenic role for this enzyme has been identified in the human pancreas since it has been identified as an autoantibody and an autoreactive T cell target in insulin dependent diabetes. This gene may also play a role in the stiff man syndrome.
  • Cellular localization
    Cytoplasm; cytosol. Associated to cytoplasmic vesicles. In neurons, cytosolic leaflet of Golgi membranes and presynaptic clusters.

Images

  • Immunohistochemical analysis of formalin-fixed, paraffin-embedded Rat pancreatics sections labelling GAD65 & GAD67 with ab49832 at a concentration of 1/1000. The secondary used was a biotin peroxidase.

  • ab49832 staining human pancreas tissue sections by IHC-P.  Sections were formaldehyde fixed and subjected to heat mediated antigen retreival in 10mM citrate buffer prior to incubation with ab49832, diluted 1/2000, for 1 hour at 25°C.  An Alexa Fluor® 546 conjugated goat anti-rabbit antibody, diluted 1/200, was used as the secondary.
