Almost any producer of commercial antibodies will have one or more
preparation in its catalog against GFAP (glial fibrillary acidic
protein), both polyclonal and monoclonal. Try DAKO, Sigma, Chemicon,
well . . . any.
We are using the DAKO polyclonal antibody on sections of fixed rat brain
and on cultured cells to identify and locate astrocytes, much to our
satisfaction.
