Gene Full Name internexin neuronal intermediate filament protein, alpha
Background Neurofilaments are type IV intermediate filament heteropolymers composed of light, medium, and heavy chains. Neurofilaments comprise the axoskeleton and they functionally maintain the neuronal caliber. They may also play a role in intracellular transport to axons and dendrites. This gene is a member of the intermediate filament family and is involved in the morphogenesis of neurons. [provided by RefSeq, Jun 2009]
Function Class-IV neuronal intermediate filament that is able to self-assemble. It is involved in the morphogenesis of neurons. It may form an independent structural network without the involvement of other neurofilaments or it may cooperate with NF-L to form the filamentous backbone to which NF-M and NF-H attach to form the cross-bridges.

Calculated MW 55 kDa
PTM O-glycosylated.

    Immunocytochemistry: Rat mixed neuron-glial cultures stained with ARG10730 anti-NF66 / alpha Internexin antibody (red) and co-stained with chicken antibody to peripherin  (green). The alpha internexin antibody stains numerous axonal and dendritic profiles in these cultures, while peripherin antibody binds to only a subset of neurons.

  • ARG10730 anti-NF66 / alpha Internexin antibody IHC-Fr image

    Immunohistochemistry: Frozen section of Rat cerebellum stained with ARG10730 anti-NF66 / alpha Internexin antibody (green) at 1:2000 dilution and costained with ARG52313 anti-GFAP antibody (red) at 1:5000 dilution. DAPI (blue) for nuclear staining. (Sample preparation: 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 alpha Internexin antibody selectively stains axons and dendrites of neuronal cells, in particular Purkinje cells and parallel fibers the axons of granule cells. The GFAP antibody labels network of glial cells, such as astrocytes in the granule cell layer and white matter and Bergmann glia in the molecular layer.

    Western blot: Whole Rat spinal cord homogenate stained with ARG10730 anti-NF66 / alpha Internexin antibody at 1:20000 dilution. A prominent band running at ~66 kDa is apparent, as well as smaller lower bands which are apparently degradation products. A minor band at ~150 kDa is also seen, apparently resulting from dimerization of alpha-internexin.
