Human Glutamic Acid Decarboxylase (GAD-67), [EC 22.214.171.124] is a 66,987 dalton protein (594 amino acids) selectively expressed in a subpopulation of GABAergic neurons of the CNS. It catalyzes the decarboxylation of glutamic acid, forming the inhibitory neurotransmitter beta-amino butyric acid (GABA). It is also know as GAD-1.
Chickens were immunized with a synthetic peptide / keyhole limpet hemocyanin (KLH) conjugate. This synthetic peptide corresponded to a region near the Cterminus of this gene product, and was 100% conserved between the human (Q99259, NCBI), mouse (P48318, NCBI) and rat (NP_058703, NCBI) gene products. After repeated injections into the hens, immune eggs were collected, and the IgY fractions were purified from the yolks. These IgY fractions were then affinity-purified using a peptide column, the concentrations of the eluate adjusted to 100 ug/ml, and the preparation was filter-sterilized through a 0.45 µm filter.
