Glyceraldehyde-3-phosphate dehydrogenase (GAPDH) catalyzes the reversible oxidative phosphorylation of glyceraldehyde-3-phosphate in the presence of inorganic phosphate and nicotinamide adenine dinucleotide (NAD), an important energy-yielding step in carbohydrate metabolism. Recent evidence suggests that it also is involved in a number of cellular processes such as membrane fusion, phosphotransferase activity, DNA replication and repair, and nuclear RNA export. GAPDH has also been implicated in playing a role in different pathologies such as cancer progression, apoptosis, and neuronal diseases such as Alzheimer's and Huntington's disease. GAPDH is constitutively expressed at high levels in almost all tissues and cell lines making it ideal for use as a loading control marker in immunoblots.

CommentsI used GAPDH antibody NB100-56875 for Western blot on Lec-2 cells extracts before. It worked really well. Last lot, 04231895B-10, does not recognize hamster GAPDH. I cannot blame Novus since it is polyclonal antibody and they also did not claim that it recognizes hamster GAPDH.

FAQs for GAPDH Antibody (NB100-56875). (Showing 1 - 6 of 6 FAQs).

  1. We need a loading control antibody for WB working with HeLa cell line, will this GAPDH antibody work for that?
    • Well GAPDH is expressed in HeLa cell lines but whether or not it is the best option for a loading control antibody depends on the size of the protein you are lookin at. GAPDH antibody is a good choice for low to mid MW targets as GAPDH detects around 35 kDa.
  2. I want to know why GAPDH is used as a loading control antibody in WB techniques.
    • Our GAPDH antibody makes a good loading control because GAPDH is  a housekeeping gene essential to metabolism that is globally expressed in most tissue types and cell lines.
  3. I need a suitable loading control antibody that I can use in western blot of rat nerve extracts, which do you recommend?
    • This GAPDH antibody (NB300-221) is a good choice for a loading control antibody and has been cited in over 180 publications and used on rat lysates with good results.
  4. I'm looking for a loading control between 24kDa - 65kDa for use in simple western, we tried an actin antibody  we already had but it didn't work. What can you recommend?
    • Our GAPDH antibody NB300-221 has been validated in simple western and detects around 35 kDa so I think it would be a good choice for a simple western loading control antibody based on your size requirements.
  5. What secondary antibody should I use for visualization of the GAPDH antibody?
    • This GAPDH antibody is raised in mouse so you would want to use an anti-mouse secondary with the dye of your choice.
  6. Do you offer a smaller size for the GAPDH antibodies?
    • We offer sample sizes for many of our GAPDH loading control antibodies including NB300-221.
