Description

Glial fibrillary acidic protein (GFAP) is a class III intermediate filament protein that is specifically expressed by astrocytes and ependymal cells, as well as by some fibroblasts and neural stem cells. GFAP is a critical cytoskeleton protein for these cells and is required for proper organelle anchoring. GFAP antibodies are therefore very useful as astrocytic cell markers in neuroscience or cancer research.
