Glyceraldehyde 3-Phosphate Dehydrogenase (G3PDH or GPDH) is one of the key enzymes involved in glycolysis; it catalyzes the reversible oxidative phosphorylation of glyceraldehydes-3-phosphate. The gene is constitutively and stably expressed at high levels in almost all tissues and cells, and as such is considered to be a “housekeeping” gene. Housekeeping proteins are useful as a loading control for western blots and protein normalization. They are also useful for visualizing cells in microscopy assays.

Purified pig glyceraldehyde 3-phosphate dehydrogenase enzyme.

Application Notes
The loading control clone 1D4 has been shown to react with human, cow, pig, mouse, rat, and chicken GAPDH. It is highly conserved and likely that the antibody reacts with additional species.

GAPDH - Loading Control Antibody

Application of the glyceraldehyde 3-phosphate dehydrogenase mAb as a protein loading control in Western blots. Total proteins from various human cell lysates were normalized using the loading control. The blot shown is IMGENEX's INSTA-Blot: Human Cell Lines, Cat. no. IMB-105.

GAPDH - Loading Control Antibody IMG-5019A-1

Application of the glyceraldehyde 3-phosphate dehydrogenase antibody to visualize cells by fluorescence microscopy. Sh-SY5Y human neuroblastoma cells were stained with IMG-5091A, followed by an FITC labeled secondary (green) and counterstained with Hoechst dye (blue).
