Background GFAP is 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.Synonyms: Glial Fibrillary Acidic Protein
Molecular Weight 1804.38 Da
Gene ID 2670
NCBI Accession NP_001124491
UniProt P14136
Research Area Stem Cells, Cytoskeleton, Glia marker, Cell/Tissue Markers, Neurology
Application Notes Optimal working dilution should be determined by the investigator.

This peptide is for ABIN358488
