Glial Fibrillary Acidic Protein (GFAP) belongs to the class III of the intermediate filament proteins highly specific to astrocytes in the brain. It is also expressed on some ependymal cells in the central nervous system and schwann cells, enteric glial cells and satellite cells in the peripheral nervous system. GFAP is used to differentiate astrocytoma from nonglial cell tumors.
