Monoclonal Mouse Supernatant B IP IH IC IF
Neurofilaments (NFs), the intermediate filaments (IFs) specific to neurons, are the predominant cytoskeletal elements in many nerve cells. They are believed not only to confer mechanical stability, but also to play a role in determining axonal caliber. Human NFs are composed of three protein subunits, NF-L,NF-M and NF-H, which have mol. wts predicted from their gene sequences of-62,000,-102,000 and-110,000 respectively. Each type of NFs contains a central a-helical 'rod' domain of-310aa, characterized by a heptad repeat in the aa sequence in which the first and fourth residues are apolar. Perikaryal NFs are predominantly unphosphorylated, while axonal NFs are highly phosphorylated. Defects in NFL are the cause of Charcot-Marie-Tooth disease type 1F while defects in NFH are a cause of susceptibility to amyotrophic lateral sclerosis. The gene bank accession no of NF-L, NF-M and NF-H are NP_006149.1, NP_066554.2 and NP_005373.1 respectively.
