Encor Mouse Monoclonal to Neurofilament NF-H
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 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.
MCA-AH1 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 MCA-AH1 in dendritic and perikaryal neurofilaments. The HGNC name for this protein is NEFH.
MCA-NAP4 is a mouse monoclonal antibody raised against a preparation of native NF-H purified from pig spinal cord. MCA-NAP4 is an IgG1 class antibody with a k light chain. It recognizes phosphorylated NF-H KSP (lysine-serine-proline) type sequences. In some species there is some cross-reactivity with the related phosphorylated KSP sequences found in the related neurofilament subunit NF-M. The antibody 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.
