In Western blot, this antibody detects bands at ~145kDa in crude homogenates of rat cerebellum homogenate. Human and bovine run slower at ~160kDa. A minor band at1~110kDa is also frequently seen, which appears to be an in-vivo proteolytic fragment of NF-M.
Like most other intermediate filament proteins (IFPs), the expression of the different neuronal IFPs is both tissue-specific and developmentally regulated. The neurofilament (NF) triplet proteins (~70, 160, and 200 kDa) occur in both the central and peripheral nervous system and are normally restricted to neurons. The 70 kDa NF-protein can self-assemble into a filamentous structure, whereas the 160 kDa and 200 kDa NF-proteins require the presence of the 70 kDa NF-protein to co-assemble.
