Gene name

GFAP (HGNC Symbol)

Synonyms

FLJ45472

Description

glial fibrillary acidic protein (HGNC Symbol)

Entrez gene summary

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.
