What means MutVar# ?

by trying to understand how "writeIORef" works, I looked at

data STRef s a = STRef (MutVar# s a)

  what is MutVar# ? (especially zhe "#" ) ? I've readed tha writeIORef 
(and readIoRef etc) is used to write directly to memory places fo 
implementing variables, as in example in HOpenGL used.  Is this also 
Haskell standard ?

Thanks for help
