Monoclonal Mouse Supernatant 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-M is the neurofilament middle or medium molecular weight polypeptide and runs on SDS-PAGE gels at 145-160kD, 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 in the diagnostics of neurofilament accumulations seen in many neurological diseases, such as Lou Gehrig's disease or Alzheimer's disease.
Catalog #N2160-01R
ApplicationsSuitable for use in Immunofluorescence, Western Blotting. Other applications not tested.
Recommended DilutionImmunofluorescence: 1:100
Western Blotting: 1:1000
Optimal dilutions to be determined by the researcher.
Storage and StabilityMay be stored at 4°C for short-term only. For long-term storage and to avoid repeated freezing and thawing, add glycerol (40-50%)aliquot and store at -20°C. Aliquots are stable for at least 12 months at -20°C. For maximum recovery of product, centrifuge the original vial after thawing and prior to removing the cap. Further dilutions can be made in assay buffer.
Clone TypeMonoclonal
IsotypeIgG1
Clone No6H9
HostMouse
SourceRat
Concentration~1mg/ml
FormSupplied as a liquid in PBS, pH 7.2, 0.1% sodium azide.
PurityTissue culture supernatant
ImmunogenRecombinant fusion protein containing the extreme C-terminus of rat NF-M expressed in and purified from E. coli (1).
SpecificityThe epitope is localized to within the last 56 amino acids at the extreme C-terminus of rat NF-M, the so-called KE segment which is highly conserved between NF-M molecules from different species. Recognizes intact NF-M strongly and specifically on Western Blots in all mammals and birds tested to date and also binds NF-M in cells in tissue culture and in sectioned material.
