Astrocyte Markers

Astrocyte Markers

Astrocytes are large glial cells more abundant than the neurons in the central nervous system. Astrocytes are usually star-shaped glial cells extending radially from the cell body, and their morphology can change. Astrocytes have been shown to be dysfunctional in certain neurodegenerative diseases, such as Huntington's disease, Parkinson's disease, Alzheimer's disease, and amyotrophic lateral sclerosis. The specific functions of astrocytes are: Astrocyte Markers

  • Maintain extracellular ion balance
  • Provide structural support for neurons
  • Regulate synaptic transmission, including transmitter uptake and release and potassium uptake
  • Provide nutrients such as lactic acid and glucose to neurons
  • Support repair and regeneration after central nervous system injury
  • Remove debris by phagocytosis
