Glial Fibrillary Acidic Protein (GFAP)

Glial Fibrillary Acidic Protein (GFAP), as a member of the cytoskeletal protein family, is the principal 8–9 nm intermediate filament in mature astrocytes of the central nervous system (CNS). GFAP is a monomeric molecule with a molecular mass between 40 and 53 kDa. GFAP is highly brain specific protein that is not found outside the CNS. GFAP is released after traumatic brain injury (TBI) severity and outcome into the blood very soon after TBI. GFAP is not released after multiple trauma without brain injury. In the CNS following injury (result of trauma), disease, genetic disorders, chemical insult, astrocytes become rapidly synthesize GFAP (astrogliosis). In respect to the high brain specificity and early releasing from CNS after TBI, GFAP might be suitable marker for early diagnostics.
