anti-GAPDH monoclonals now available
Three monoclonal antibodies to Plasmodium falciparum glyceraldehyde-3-phosphate dehydrogenase (GAPDH) are now available as protein G purified reagents. mAbs to GAPDH are commonly used as a loading control for Western blots, and as a marker of the parasite cytoplasm. GAPDH is a highly abundant enzyme involved in the sixth step of glycolysis. Positive in IFA with P. vivax. May also be cross-reactive with GAPDH from rodent Plasmodia.
Monoclonals available in 100 microgram quantities. mAbs 7.2 and 7.8 recognise similar, oevrlapping epitopes, whilst 13.3 recognises a different epitope from both.
