Neurofilaments (NF) are cytoplasmic intermediate filaments (IFs) found in neurons. NF-66, also known as alpha-internexin, is a member of the IF family. Classified as a type IV IF, NF-66 is expressed by most neurons and has been shown to co-assemble with other NF triple proteins (light, medium and heavy NF) (1-2). In the adult brain, NF-66 is expressed at relatively low levels compared to the other NF proteins (3). NF-66 as also been shown to assemble into 10mm diameter IF in vitro

Suitable for use in Flow Cytometry, Western Blot and Immunoprecipitation. Other applications not tested.

Recommended Dilution:
Flow Cytometry: 1:20
Western Blot: 1:50,000
Immunoprecipitation: 1:100
Optimal dilutions to be determined by the researcher.

Storage and Stability:
May be stored at 4C for short-term only. For long-term storage, aliquot and store at -20C. Aliquots are stable for at least 12 months at -20C. 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.
