Primary antibodies used were mouse antiglial fibrillary
acidic protein cocktail (1:100, BD Bioscience Pharmagen, San Jose, CA, USA), mouse anti-CD3 (1:350, Dako), and mouse anti-CD68 (1:50, Dako).

A protein called glial fibrillary
acidic protein (GFAP), which is essential for maintaining the structure of astrocytes (Belanger et al.
To the Editor: Systemic AL amyloidosis is a rare, multisystem disease in which a clonal population of plasma cells in the bone marrow produces a monoclonal light chain or light-chain fragment that is deposited in body organs as an insoluble fibrillary
The researchers found that the gene encoding glial fibrillary
acidic protein (GFAP) was twice as active in the brain cortexes of these alcohol-fed pups as in the cortexes of control pups that were either nursed by their dams or fed a sugar-milk solution.
Microscopically, this nodule was composed of moderately sized epithelioid cells with indistinct cell borders, fibrillary
cytoplasm, and round to irregular nuclei with clumped chromatin within a fibromyxoid background (figure).
Perineurioma shows epithelial membrane antigen positivity and S100 and glial fibrillary
acidic protein negativity, which helps in the differential diagnosis in such cases.
They lacked chromogranin A, glial fibrillary
acidic protein, vimentin, S-100, and cytokeratin antigen expression.
In the January issue of Clinical Chemistry, Foerch and colleagues (1) report on the diagnostic accuracy of plasma glial fibrillary
acidic protein (GFAP)  for differentiating intracerebral hemorrhage (ICH) and cerebral ischemia in patients with symptoms of acute stroke.
