GFAP, Glial fibillary acidic protein is an intermediate filament protein. It was found in astrocytes cells as a cell specific marker in the central nervous system development. GFAP is defective in Alexander disease. But it is highly expressed in Astrogliosis which is a result of some diseases, such as AIDS, dementia and inflammatory demyelination diseases.
