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 GFAP cause Alexander disease, a rare disorder of astrocytes in the central nervous system. Alternative splicing, results in multiple transcript variants encoding distinct isoforms.
