Unformatted text preview: How is the marker known as BFABP (brain fatty acid binding protein) used in these erbB3 studies? BFAP is a protein that is produced only by differentiated Schwann cells and therefore, can be used as a marker to identify them. Fluorescently labeled antibodies against BFABP are used to verify the presence of Schwann cells in normal tissue and their absence in the skin tissue in erbB3 mutant mice....
