Gene Information

human ... GFAP(2670)

Descripción general

Glial fibrillary acidic protein is a class-III intermediate filament. GFAP is the main constituent of intermediate filaments in astrocytes and serves as a cell specific marker that distinguishes differentiated astrocytes from other glial cells during the development of the central nervous system.


Expected to cross-react with porcine, chicken, bovine, and rabbit.
The antibody reacts with GFAP from human, pig, chicken and rat. In tissue sections this antibody stains astrocytes and Bergman glia cells (Debus, E., 1983).


Purified glial filament (Debus, E., 1983).
