GAD65-fl (Human Glutamic Acid Decarboxylase 65kDa Isoform, Full-length)
GAD65 is primarily expressed in neuron cells and pancreas β-cells. It works as a catalyser in GABA synthesis.
Glutamic acid decarboxylase autoantibodies (GADA) are found in 70% to 80% of individuals with new-onset type 1 diabetes, making it the most frequent autoantibody in autoimmune diabetes. GADA can be detected in serum for many years post diagnosis, and high concentrations of GADA have been considered as a marker of faster β-cell exhaustion in these patients. Furthermore, GADA in non-diabetic individuals predicts the later development of type 1 diabetes1. Besides autoimmune diabetes, GADA also exists in Stiff Man Syndrome, autoimmune poly-endocrinopathies, and some of Grave’s Disease patients.
