Anti-GAD2 Rabbit Monoclonal Antibody
Glutamate decarboxylase (GAD) catalyzes the production of gamma-aminobutyric acid (GABA), a major inhibitory neurotransmitter. GAD is represented by two isoforms, GAD1 and GAD2, which are the products of two different genes and differ substantially only at their N-terminal regions. In neurons and beta cells, GAD is concentrated around synaptic vesicles and synaptic-like microvesicles, respectively, as well as in the area of the Golgi complex. GAD2 lies primarily in axon terminals and only about half of GAD2 exists as active holoenzyme . The beta cell-specific marker GAD2 can be quantified in pancreatic cell extracts and in serum . GAD2 is a major target for autoantibodies and autoreactive T cells in patients with insulin-dependent diabetes mellitus. Autoantibodies to GAD are also found in patients with stiff man syndrome or polyendocrine autoimmunity .
