Antigen/Purification: ExpandCollapse

The antigen is a preparation of porcine intermediate filaments.

The antibody is Protein G purified tissue culture supernatant.

Biological Significance: ExpandCollapse

Neurofilaments are the 10nm or intermediate filament proteins found specifically in neurons, and are composed predominantly of three major proteins called NF-L, NF-M and NF-H (1). NF-L is the neurofilament light or low molecular weight polypeptide and runs on SDS-PAGE gels at about ~68 kDa. Antibodies to NF-L are useful for identifying neuronal cells and their processes in tissue sections and in tissue culture. Mutations in the protein coding region of the human NF-L gene cause some forms of Charcot-Marie-Tooth disease (2).

100 µl in PBS + 10 mM NaN3.  Adequate amount of material to conduct 10-mini Western Blots.

Recommended that the undiluted antibody be aliquoted into smaller working volumes (10-30 uL/vial depending on usage) upon arrival and stored long term at -20° C or -80° C, while keeping a working aliquot stored at 4° C for short term. Avoid freeze/thaw cycles. Stable for at least 1 year.
