  • Description
    Chicken polyclonal to 68kDa Neurofilament
  • Tested applicationsSuitable for: ICC/IF, WBmore details
  • Species reactivity
    Reacts with: Mouse, Rat, Chicken, Cat, Human
  • Immunogen

    Tissue/ cell preparation (Cow): bovine intermediate filaments prepared from spinal cords.

  • Positive control
    • ICC/IF: SKNSH cells.
  • General notes


    To raise this antibody bovine intermediate filaments were prepared from spinal cords by the method of Delacourte et al. and the cytoskeletal material was dissolved in 6M urea. To ensure greater specificity for NFL, animals were boosted with recombinant mouse NFL purified from bacteria. This antibody was generated in chicken by standard procedures and immunoglobulin was extracted from egg yolk. This is the chicken homologue of mammalian IgG and can be used in the same general way, with the caveat that this type of antibody does not bind either Protein A or Protein G.

Target

  • FunctionNeurofilaments usually contain three intermediate filament proteins: L, M, and H which are involved in the maintenance of neuronal caliber.
  • Involvement in diseaseDefects in NEFL are the cause of Charcot-Marie-Tooth disease type 1F (CMT1F) [MIM:607734]. CMT1F is a form of Charcot-Marie-Tooth disease, the most common inherited disorder of the peripheral nervous system. Charcot-Marie-Tooth disease is classified in two main groups on the basis of electrophysiologic properties and histopathology: primary peripheral demyelinating neuropathy or CMT1, and primary peripheral axonal neuropathy or CMT2. Neuropathies of the CMT1 group are characterized by severely reduced nerve conduction velocities (less than 38 m/sec), segmental demyelination and remyelination with onion bulb formations on nerve biopsy, slowly progressive distal muscle atrophy and weakness, absent deep tendon reflexes, and hollow feet. CMT1F is characterized by onset in infancy or childhood (range 1 to 13 years).
    Defects in NEFL are the cause of Charcot-Marie-Tooth disease type 2E (CMT2E) [MIM:607684]. CMT2E is an autosomal dominant form of Charcot-Marie-Tooth disease type 2. Neuropathies of the CMT2 group are characterized by signs of axonal regeneration in the absence of obvious myelin alterations, normal or slightly reduced nerve conduction velocities, and progressive distal muscle weakness and atrophy.
  • Sequence similaritiesBelongs to the intermediate filament family.
  • DomainThe extra mass and high charge density that distinguish the neurofilament proteins from all other intermediate filament proteins are due to the tailpiece extensions. This region may form a charged scaffolding structure suitable for interaction with other neuronal components or ions.
  • Post-translational
    modifications
    O-glycosylated.
    Phosphorylated in the Head and Rod regions by the PKC kinase PKN1, leading to inhibit polymerization.

Anti-68kDa Neurofilament antibody images

  • ICC/IF image of ab24520 stained SKNSH cells. The cells were 4% formaldehyde fixed (10 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 (ab24520, 1/1000 dilution) overnight at +4°C. The secondary antibody (green) was ab96947, DyLight® 488 goat anti-chicken IgY (H+L) used at a 1/250 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
