Antigen/Purification: ExpandCollapse

The antigen is a recombinant fusion protein containing the extreme C-terminus of rat NF-M expressed in and purified from E. coli.

The antibody is  total IgY fraction.

Biological Significance: ExpandCollapse

Neurofilaments are the 10 nm or intermediate filament proteins found specifically in neurons, and are composed predominantly of three major proteins called NF-L, NF-M and NF-H (Harris et al., 1991). NF-M is the neurofilament middle or medium molecular weight polypeptide and runs on SDS-PAGE gels at 145-160 kDa, with some variability across species boundaries. Antibodies to NF-M are useful for identifying neuronal cells and their processes in tissue sections and in tissue culture. NF-M antibodies can also be useful to visualize neurofilament accumulations seen in many neurological diseases, such as Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis (Lou Gehrig’s disease) and Alzheimer’s disease (Hu et al., 2002).
