Effects of Alexander disease-associated mutations on the assembly and organization of GFAP intermediate filaments.

In brain tissues of patients with Alexander disease, a significant amount of insoluble GFAP was found in Rosenthal fiber fractions, which revealed a substantial amount of insoluble GFAP. These results reveal that GFAP assembly defects contribute to tissue pathology at the tissue level, and that modified filament assembly and properties as a result of GFAP mutation are important initiating factors in Alexander disease pathogenesis.
