Anti-Neurofilament 160 antibody, Mouse monoclonal, (mouse IgG1 isotype) is derived from the NN18 hybridoma produced by the fusion of mouse myeloma cells and splenocytes from mouse immunized with neurofilaments purified from pig spinal cord. Neurofilaments (NFs) belong to the intermediate filament (IF) family and are expressed mainly in cells or tissues of neuronal origin. Three major NFs subunits were discovered: light (NF-L, ~68 kDa), medium (NF-M, ~160 kDa) and heavy (NF-H, ~200 kDa), which are themselves composed of two tetrameric protofilament complexes of monomeric proteins. Neurofilament 160, also known as NF-M or Neurofilament triplet M protein.

NFs can accumulate in large numbers within cell bodies and proximal axons of affected neurons in a variety of pathologies, including Charcot-Marie-Tooth disease (CMT), neurofilament inclusion disease (NFID), giant axonal neuropathy (GAN), diabetic neuropathy, spinal muscular atrophy (SMA) and spastic paraplegia. In addition, NFs accumulation were detected in Alzheimer′s (AD) and Parkinson′s disease (PD) patients. Elevated concentrations of Neurofilament 160 have been shown in cerebrospinal fluid (CSF) and serum samples from patients with brain injury.
