Species cross-reactivity is determined by western blot using the unconjugated antibody.
Applications Key: IF-F=Immunofluorescence (Frozen)
Species predicted to react based on 100% sequence homology: Human.
Specificity / Sensitivity
Neurofilament-L (C28E10) Rabbit mAb (Alexa Fluor® 647 Conjugate) detects endogenous levels of total Neurofilament-L protein.
Source / Purification
Monoclonal antibody is produced by immunizing animals with a synthetic peptide surrounding Glu450 of human Neurofilament-L protein.
This Cell Signaling Technology antibody is conjugated to Alexa Fluor® 647 fluorescent dye and tested in-house for immunofluorescent analysis in rat tissue. The antibody is expected to exhibit the same species cross-reactivity as the unconjugated Neurofilament-L (C28E10) Rabbit mAb #2837.
The cytoskeleton consists of three types of cytosolic fibers: actin microfilaments, intermediate filaments, and microtubules. Neurofilaments are the major intermediate filaments found in neurons and consist of light (NFL), medium (NFM), and heavy (NFH) subunits (1). Similar in structure to other intermediate filament proteins, neurofilaments have a globular amino-terminal head, a central α-helical rod domain, and a carboxy-terminal tail. A heterotetrameric unit (NFL-NFM and NFL-NFH) forms a protofilament, with eight protofilaments comprising the typical 10 nm intermediate filament (2). While neurofilaments are critical for radial axon growth and determine axon caliber, microtubules are involved in axon elongation. PKA phosphorylates the head domain of NFL and NFM to inhibit neurofilament assembly (3,4). Research studies have shown neurofilament accumulations in many human neurological disorders including Parkinson's disease (in Lewy bodies along with α-synuclein), Alzheimer's disease, Charcot-Marie-Tooth disease, and Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis (ALS) (1).
