MGI Phenotype FUNCTION: [Summary is not available for the mouse gene. This summary is for the human ortholog.] This gene encodes one of the major intermediate filament proteins of mature astrocytes. It is used as a marker to distinguish astrocytes from other glial cells during development. Mutations in this gene cause Alexander disease, a rare disorder of astrocytes in the central nervous system. Alternative splicing results in multiple transcript variants encoding distinct isoforms. [provided by RefSeq, Oct 2008]
PHENOTYPE: Homozygotes for targeted null mutations show reduced astrocyte-associated intermediate filaments, enhanced long-term potentiation and impaired eye-blink conditioning. Aged mutants may show hydrocephaly, reduced myelination and impaired blood-brain barrier. [provided by MGI curators]
