Background 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 . NF-H is the neurofilament high or heavy molecular weight polypeptide and runs on SDS-PAGE gels at 200-220 kDa, with some variability across species boundaries. Antibodies to NF-H are useful for identifying neuronal cells and their processes in tissue sections and in tissue culture. NF-H antibodies can also be useful to visualize neurofilament accumulations seen in many neurological diseases, such as Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis (Lou Gehrig's disease) (2) and Alzheimer's disease .

Calculated MW 112 kDa
PTM There are a number of repeats of the tripeptide K-S-P, NFH is phosphorylated on a number of the serines in this motif. It is thought that phosphorylation of NFH results in the formation of interfilament cross bridges that are important in the maintenance of axonal caliber.
Phosphorylation seems to play a major role in the functioning of the larger neurofilament polypeptides (NF-M and NF-H), the levels of phosphorylation being altered developmentally and coincidentally with a change in the neurofilament function.
Phosphorylated in the head and rod regions by the PKC kinase PKN1, leading to the inhibition of polymerization.

    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.
