General description

Neurofilaments belong to the intermediate filament family and are expressed mainly in cells or tissues of neuronal origin. It is crucial for proper radial growth of axons.
Monoclonal Anti-Neurofilament 160 (mouse IgG1 iso-type) is produced by the fusion mouse myeloma cells and splenocytes from an immunized mouse. Neurofilaments are composed of three sub-units- light NFL protein, medium NFM protein, heavy NFH protein. Along with there two other intermediate filaments are present α-internexin and peripherin. Neurofilaments are phosphoproteins.


Mouse monoclonal anti-neurofilament 160 antibody reacts specifically with neurofilaments of molecular weight 160,000 but does not cross react with other intermediate filament proteins.


neurofilaments from pig spinal cord.


Monoclonal anti-neurofilament 160 antibody (diluted 1: 5000) can be used as internal loading controls in immunoblotting. It can also be used in whole-mount immunohistochemistry and western blot. Monoclonal anti-neurofilament 160 antibodies can be used for localization of neurofilaments of molecular weight 160,000 in cultured cells or tissues preparation.
Monoclonal anti-neurofilament 160 antibody has been used in
  • Immunoblotting.
  • Immunohistochemistry
  • Immunofluorescence

Biochem/physiol Actions

Neurofilaments play a role in axonal calibre as they help in movement of an impulse down the axon. Their activity depends on phosphorylation of neurofilaments.Mutations of neurofilaments causes Charcot-Marie-Tooth (CMT) disease. Accumulation of neurofilaments has been observed in many human neurological diseases like Alzheimer′s disease, progressive supranuclear palsy, diabetic neuropathy, and giant axonal neuropathy.

The development of the nervous system is a dynamic process during which factors act in an instructive fashion to direct the differentiation and survival of neurons, and to induce axonal outgrowth, guidance to, and terminal branching within the target tissue....

Neurotrophins and their receptors control a number of cellular processes, such as survival, gene expression and axonal growth, by activating multiple signalling pathways in peripheral neurons. Whether each of these pathways controls a distinct developmental process remains unknown. Here we...

Neurofilaments make up the major intermediate filament system in mature neurons. Recent studies demonstrate that neurofilaments in vivo are obligate heteropolymers and are required for proper radial growth of axons. Furthermore, forced over-expression of neurofilament subunits in transgenic mice shows...

Glutamate transporters are involved in neural differentiation, neuronal survival, and synaptic transmission. In the present study, we examined glutamate transporter 1 (GLT1) expression in the neonatal somatosensory cortex of C57BL/6 mice, and pursued its role in somatosensory development by comparing...
