Overview

Product Description

Neurofilaments are the major intermediate filaments found in neurons and consist of light (NFL), medium (NFM), and heavy (NFH) subunits. It appears that the essence of this assembly process is the heterotetrameric unit, which exists in two forms: NFL-NFM and NFL-NFH. Tetramer pairs form protofilaments and eight protofilaments constitute the final 10 nm intermediate filament. NFL is essential for the correct assembly of neurofilaments and maintenance of axonal calibre and NFM not only forms cross-bridges, stabilizing the filament network, but also helps in longitudinal extension. NFH also forms cross-bridges and may interact with micro-tubules and other cytoskeletal elements. Neurofilament accumulations are found in several human neurological diseases. These include ALS, Lewy bodies in Parkinson’s disease and some dementias (neurofilaments are a component of the Lewy body along with a-synuclein), Alzheimer’s disease, progressive supranuclear palsy, Charcot-Marie-Tooth disease, diabetic neuropathy, and giant axonal neuropathy.

Properties

Storage Instruction For continuous use, store undiluted antibody at 2-8°C for up to a week. For long-term storage, aliquot and store at -20°C or below. Storage in frost free freezers is not recommended. Avoid repeated freeze/thaw cycles. Suggest spin the vial prior to opening. The antibody solution should be gently mixed before use.
Note For laboratory research only, not for drug, diagnostic or other use.

  • ARG52347 anti-Neurofilament NF-H antibody IHC-Fr image

    Immunohistochemistry: Frozen section of Rat cerebellum tissue stained with ARG52347 anti-Neurofilament NF-H antibody (red) at 1:5000 dilution, and costained with anti-GFAP antibody (green) at 1:5000 dilution. DAPI (blue) for nuclear staining. Following transcardial perfusion with 4% paraformaldehyde, brain was post fixed for 24 hours, cut to 45 µM, and free floating sections were stained with above antibodies.

    The NF-H antibody labels network of axons of different neurons, while the GFAP antibody stains astrocytes and other glial cells.

  • ARG52348 anti-Neurofilament NF-L antibody [DA2] IHC-Fr image

    Immunohistochemistry: Frozen section of Rat frontal cortex tissue stained with ARG52348 anti-Neurofilament NF-L antibody [DA2] (red) at 1:500 dilution, and costained with anti-GFAP antibody (green) at 1:5000 dilution. Following transcardial perfusion of Rat with 4% paraformaldehyde, brain was post fixed for 24 hours, cut to 45 µM, and free-floating sections were stained with above antibodies.

    Clone DA2 labels cell bodies and processes of pyramidal neurons, as well as dendrites and axons of other neuronal cells, while the GFAP antibody stains the network of glial cells.

  • ARG52351 anti-Neurofilament NF-M antibody IHC-Fr image

    Immunohistochemistry: Frozen section of Rat cerebellum tissue stained with ARG52351 anti-Neurofilament NF-M antibody (red) at 1:1000 dilution, and co-stained with ARG11063 anti-CNPase antibody [1H10] (green) at 1:500 dilution. DAPI (blue) for nuclear staining. (Sample preparation: Following transcardial perfusion of rat with 4% paraformaldehyde, brain was post fixed for 24 hours, cut to 45 µM, and free-floating sections were stained with the above antibodies.)

    The NF-M antibody labels the network of axons of basket neurons and other neurons. The CNPase antibody stains oligodendrocytes, cells that create myelin sheaths around axons.

  • ARG52347 anti-Neurofilament NF-H antibody WB image

    Western blot: Rat spinal cord, Mouse spinal cord and Cow spinal cord lysates stained with ARG52347 anti-Neurofilament NF-H antibody (green) at 1:20000 dilution.

    Strong band at about 200-220 kDa corresponds to the phosphorylated from of NF-H. Smaller proteolytic fragments of NF-H are also detected in spinal cord preparations with this antibody.
