  • Target

    • RelevanceNeurofilaments are the 10nm or intermediate filament proteins found specifically in neurons, and are composed predominantly of three major proteins called neurofilament light (NF-L), neurofilament medium (NF-M) and neurofilament heavy (NF-H). Neurofilament medium runs on SDS-PAGE gels in the range 145-170 kDa, with some variation in different species. Antibodies to this protein are useful to identify neurons and their processes in tissue sections and in tissue culture. Neurofilament medium can also be useful in studies of neurofilament accumulations seen in many neurological diseases, such as Lou Gehrig's disease or Alzheimer's disease.

    • Anti-160 kD Neurofilament Medium antibody - Neuronal Marker (ab9034) at 1/20000 dilution + whole rat cerebellum homogenateA prominent band is observed at ~145kDa corresponding to rat 160kDa Neurofilament. Human and bovine neurofilament medium run a little slower, at about 160kDa.
    • The image illustrates the high definition dendritic staining obtained after protease pretreatment. This picture was kindly supplied as part of the review submitted by Prof Colm Cunningham and Dr Suzanne Campion (Southampton University).
    • ICC/IF image of ab9034 stained PC12 cells. The cells were 100% methanol fixed (5 min) and then incubated in 1%BSA / 10% normal goat serum / 0.3M glycine in 0.1% PBS-Tween for 1h to permeabilise the cells and block non-specific protein-protein interactions. The cells were then incubated with the antibody (ab9034, 1/1000 dilution) overnight at +4°C. The secondary antibody (green) was Alexa Fluor® 488 goat anti-rabbit IgG (H+L) used at a 1/1000 dilution for 1h. Alexa Fluor® 594 WGA was used to label plasma membranes (red) at a 1/200 dilution for 1h. DAPI was used to stain the cell nuclei (blue) at a concentration of 1.43µM.

    We have just received the following information from Novus: "I would guess 10 mg/ml based upon feedback on previous rabbits." I hope this information helps, best of luck with your stainings,
