The glial fibrillary acidic protein (GFAP) is expressed in a cell-specific manner and represents the major subunit of intermediate filaments of astroglial cells. The knowledge of the gene structure is an important step for further understanding the mechanisms of cell-specific expression. In the present study, we report the complete sequence of the rat GFAP gene and provide evidence for the existence, in the rat brain, of a novel alternative transcript. Since three different transcripts… CONTINUE READING
