Our Abpromise guarantee covers the use of ab238000 in the following tested applications.

The application notes include recommended starting dilutions; optimal dilutions/concentrations should be determined by the end user.

Application Abreviews Notes
Protein Array Use at an assay dependent concentration.
IHC-P Use a concentration of 1 - 2 µg/ml.

Staining of formalin-fixed tissues requires boiling tissue sections in 10 mM citrate buffer, pH 6.0, for 10-20 minutes followed by cooling at RT for 20 minutes. Incubate with primary antibody for 30 minutes at RT.


  • Function

    Catalyzes the production of GABA.
  • Sequence similarities

    Belongs to the group II decarboxylase family.
  • Post-translational

    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.

  • ab238000 was tested in protein array against over 19000 different full-length human proteins.
    Z- and S- Score: The Z-score represents the strength of a signal that a monoclonal antibody (MAb) (in combination with a fluorescently-tagged anti-IgG secondary antibody) produces when binding to a particular protein on the HuProtTM array. Z-scores are described in units of standard deviations (SD's) above the mean value of all signals generated on that array. If targets on HuProtTM are arranged in descending order of the Z-score, the S-score is the difference (also in units of SD's) between the Z-score. S-score therefore represents the relative target specificity of a MAb to its intended target.
    A MAb is specific to its intended target if the MAb has an S-score of at least 2.5. For example, if a MAb binds to protein X with a Z-score of 43 and to protein Y with a Z-score of 14, then the S-score for the binding of that MAb to protein X is equal to 29.
