Specificity: reacts to human Neurofilament-L (NF-L).
Recombinant rabbit monoclonal antibodies are produced using in vitro expression systems. The expression systems are developed by cloning in the specific antibody DNA sequences from immunoreactive rabbits. Then, individual clones are screened to select the best candidates for production. The advantages of using recombinant rabbit monoclonal antibodies include: better specificity and sensitivity, lot-to-lot consistency, animal origin-free formulations, and broader immunoreactivity to diverse targets due to larger rabbit immune repertoire.
Involved in the maintenance of neuronal caliber, neurofilaments are the intermediate filament proteins found specifically in neurons, and are composed predominantly of three major proteins called NF-L, NF-M and NF-H. Like most other intermediate filament proteins (IFPs), the expression of the different neuronal IFPs is both tissue-specific and developmentally regulated. NF-L is the light or low molecular weight microfilament subunit and runs on SDS-PAGE gels at approximately 70 kDa. Neurofilament 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. NF-H is the heavy or high molecular weight microfilament subunit and runs on SDS-PAGE gels in the range 180-220 kDa, with some variation in different species.
