Gene Symbol GAP43
Gene Full Name growth associated protein 43
Background The protein encoded by this gene has been termed a 'growth' or 'plasticity' protein because it is expressed at high levels in neuronal growth cones during development and axonal regeneration. This protein is considered a crucial component of an effective regenerative response in the nervous system. Alternatively spliced transcript variants encoding distinct isoforms have been found for this gene. [provided by RefSeq, Jul 2008]
Function This protein is associated with nerve growth. It is a major component of the motile "growth cones" that form the tips of elongating axons. Plays a role in axonal and dendritic filopodia induction. [UniProt]
Calculated MW 25 kDa
PTM Phosphorylated at Ser-41 by PHK. Phosphorylation of this protein by a protein kinase C is specifically correlated with certain forms of synaptic plasticity.
Palmitoylation by ARF6 is essential for plasma membrane association and axonal and dendritic filopodia induction. Deacylated by LYPLA2.

    Immunofluorescence: Cortical neuron-glial cells from E20 Rat stained with ARG10715 anti-GAP43 antibody [3H14] (red) at 1:1000 dilution and costained with ARG52328 anti-MAP2 antibody (green) at 1:10000 dilution. DAPI (blue) for nuclear staining.

    The GAP43 antibody labels protein expressed in the axonal membrane of the neuronal cells, while the MAP2 antibody stains dendrites and perikarya of neurons.

    Western blot: 1) SH-SY5Y cell lysate, and  2) whole Rat brain lysate was stained with ARG10715 anti-GAP43 antibody [3H14] at 1: 2000 dilution.

  • ARG10715 anti-GAP43 antibody [3H14] WB image

    Western blot: Rat brain, Rat spinal cord, Mouse brain, Mouse spinal cord, C6 and SH-SY5Y cell lysates stained with ARG10715 anti-GAP43 antibody [3H14] (green) at 1:5000 dilution.

    The protein is expressed in rodent and Human neurons and neuronal derived cells but not in C6 cells which are of glial origin.
