Immunoreactivity for GFAP is a consistent feature although not in all tumour cells. New intratumora clones resulting from tumour progression typically show lack of GFAP immunoreactivity. The expression of S-100 protein, vimentin and alphaB-crystallin is more uniform but of limited diagnostic significance.
