FluoTag-X2 anti-GFAP is a fluorescently conjugated single-domain antibody that recognizes mouse and rat GFAP. The single-domain antibody carries two fluorophores and is equipped with special designed linkers to work in expansion microscopy.
GFAP belongs to type III intermediate filaments (like vimentin), and it is expressed in various cell types throughout the human body. However, in the central nervous system it is almost exclusively present in astrocytes, resulting in an important marker to differentiate neurons from astrocytes. Due to the lack of conclusive evidence pin-pointing the main function of GFAP in astrocytes, it is almost exclusively serves as an excellent cellular marker. (change!!!)
