|Application ||IF, WB|
|Calculated MW||200 KDa|
|Other Names||Neurofilament heavy polypeptide, NF-H, 200 kDa neurofilament protein, Neurofilament triplet H protein, NEFH, KIAA0845, NFH|
|Target/Specificity||Purified bovine NF-H.|
|Dilution||WB~~ 1:5000 |
|Format||Unpurified mouse ascites fluid.|
|Antibody Specificity||Specific for the ~200k Neurofilament H protein. It recognizes phosphorylated NF-H KSP (lysine-serine-proline) type sequences. In some species there is some cross-reactivity with the related phosphorylated KSP sequences found in the related neurofilament subunit NF-M. It recognizes neurofilaments in frozen sections in tissue culture and in formalin fixed sections.|
|Storage||Maintain refrigerated at 2-8°C for up to 6 months. For long term storage store at -20°C in small aliquots to prevent freeze-thaw cycles.|
|Precautions||Neurofilament H (NF-H) Antibody is for research use only and not for use in diagnostic or therapeutic procedures.|

Neurofilaments are the 10nm or intermediate filament proteins found specifically in neurons, and are composed predominantly of three major proteins called NF-L, NF-M and NF-H (1). NF-H is the neurofilament high or heavy molecular weight polypeptide and runs on SDS-PAGE gels at 200-220 kDa, with some variability across species boundaries. Antibodies to NF-H are useful for identifying neuronal cells and their processes in tissue sections and in tissue culture. NF-H antibodies can also be useful to visualize neurofilament accumulations seen in many neurological diseases, such as Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis (Lou Gehrig's disease) (2) and Alzheimer's disease (3).
