Gene : GFAP Homo sapiens

Name  ? glial fibrillary acidic protein Cytological Location  17q21.31
Brief Description  glial fibrillary acidic protein
Description  This gene encodes one of the major intermediate filament proteins of mature astrocytes. It is used as a marker to distinguish astrocytes from other glial cells during development. Mutations in this gene cause Alexander disease, a rare disorder of astrocytes in the central nervous system. Alternative splicing results in multiple transcript variants encoding distinct isoforms.
