|Full Name||glutamate decarboxylase 2 (pancreatic islets and brain, 65kDa)|
|Product Description||Rabbit Polyclonal antibody to GAD65 (glutamate decarboxylase 2 (pancreatic islets and brain, 65kDa))|
|Background||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. Alternative splicing results in multiple transcript variants that encode the same protein. [provided by RefSeq]|
