A polyclonal antibody to goldfish GFAP recognises, immunohistochemically, astrocyte populations in rat brain, spinal cord and optic nerve. The pattern of staining compares favourably with that obtained using a polyclonal anti-human GFAP or a monoclonal anti-porcine GFAP. These results are consistent with the notion that GFAP is well conserved in vertebrate phylogeny.
