A marker for mature astrocytes

General Information

The family of S100 proteins comprises more than 20 members. These proteins are EF-hand Ca2+-binding proteins, and are widely distributed in mammalian tissue. Since these proteins are soluble in 100 % saturated ammonium-sulfate solution they have been named S100.
S100B is a frequently used marker protein for mature astrocytes whereas GFAP is also expressed in germinal zone cells that maintained their immature developmental stage.
