Astrocyte Cell Markers

Astrocytes are specialized glial cells that outnumber neurons by over fivefold. They contiguously tile the entire central nervous system (CNS) and exert many essential complex functions in the healthy CNS. Astrocytes respond to all forms of CNS insults through a process referred to as reactive astrogliosis, which has become a pathological hallmark of CNS structural lesions. Substantial progress has been made recently in determining functions and mechanisms of reactive astrogliosis and in identifying roles of astrocytes in CNS disorders and pathologies.(1)

GFAP Antibodies

Glial fibrillary acidic protein (GFAP) is one of the best markers for the activation of astrocytes following injury or stress in the central nervous system.(2) Culturing neurons and AS together show that local inflammatory response is significantly enhanced by inhibiting GFAP production. GFAP inhibition increased neuronal death, suggesting the protective effects of GFAP in the nervous system injury.(3)
