During mouse brain maturation, GFAP-mRNA undergoes a two-step developmental expression. It increases between birth and day 15 (period of astrocytic proliferation) and then decreases until day 55 (period of astrocytic morphological differentiation). We have developed an in vitro transcription procedure, as a mean to study the part of transcriptional control(More)
The expression of glial fibrillary acidic protein (GFAP)-mRNA during mouse brain development and in astroglial primary cultures has been investigated by using two approaches: Northern-blot evaluation using a specific cDNA probe, and cell-free translation associated with immunoprecipitation. During brain maturation (4-56 days postnatal), the GFAP-mRNA(More)
Glial fibrillary acidic protein (GFAP), an astroglial marker, has been detected in the peripheral nervous system (PNS) in a shorter version and its mRNA in a longer form (beta-type) than the brain alpha-type. To determine the characteristics of the GFAP gene expression in nonneural cells, we have investigated its in vivo transcription and translation(More)
