Monoclonal Mouse Ascites B IF
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 200-220kD, 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 in the diagnostics of neurofilament accumulations seen in many neurological diseases, such as Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis (also known as Lou Gehrig's disease) and Alzheimer's disease. 031395 is one of numerous antibodies which reacts preferentially with the axonal phosphorylated forms of NF-H. Interestingly these phosphorylated forms of NF-H are normally restricted to axons, while less phosphorylated forms are found in dendrites. However in numerous damage and disease states, phosphorylated NF-H can be detected with 031395 in dendritic and perikaryal neurofilaments. The HGNC name for this protein is NEFH.

ImmunogenPreparation of native NF-H purified from bovine spinal cord.
SpecificityRecognizes phosphorylated NF-H KSP (lysine-serine-proline) type sequences. In some species there is some crossreactivity with the related phosphorylated KSP sequences found in the related neurofilament subunit NF-M. Recognizes NF-H strongly in all mammals tested to date and also in chicken. It recognizes neurofilaments in frozen sections in tissue culture and in formalin fixed sections.
