Specificity Phospho-GFAP-pS8 Antibody Blocking Peptide
Alternative Name GFAP
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.
Alternate names: 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
