Glial fibrillary acidic (GFA) polypeptides are present in major categories of rat peripheral glia including non-myelin-forming Schwann cells, enteric glia and some satellite cells. They can be detected both immunochemically and immunohistochemically. The immunoreactivity is associated with a polypeptide which has an MW of 49 000, indistinguishable from that of glial fibrillary acidic protein (GFAP) from rat brain. In spite of this, the GFA polypeptides found in the peripheral nervous system and… CONTINUE READING
