Intermediate filaments of astrocytes and ependymal cells in a mouse brain cryosection identified using mouse monoclonal anti-GFAP and visualized with Alexa Fluor® 488 goat anti–mouse IgG antibody. Intermediate filaments of astrocytes and ependymal cells in a 14 µm mouse brain cryosection were identified using mouse monoclonal anti–glial fibrillary monoclonal antibody (anti-GFAP, Cat. no. A21282) and visualized with green-fluorescent Alexa Fluor® 488 goat anti–mouse IgG antibody (Cat. no. A11029). Nuclei were stained with blue-fluorescent DAPI (Cat. no. D1306, D3571, D21490). The image was deconvolved using Huygens software (Scientific Volume Imaging, http://www.svi.nl/). 3-D reconstruction was performed using Imaris software (Bitplane AG, http://www.bitplane.com/).

Glial fibrillary acidic protein (GFAP) is a member of the class III intermediate filament protein family. It is heavily, and specifically, expressed in astrocytes and certain other astroglia in the central nervous system, in satellite cells in peripheral ganglia, and in non-myelinating Schwann cells in peripheral nerves. In addition, neural stem cells frequently strongly express GFAP. Antibodies to GFAP are therefore very useful as markers of astrocytic cells. In addition many types of brain tumor, presumably derived from astrocytic cells, heavily express GFAP. GFAP is also found in the lens epithelium, Kupffer cells of the liver, in some cells in salivary tumors and has been reported in erythrocytes.
