Neurofilaments can be defined as the intermediate or 10nm filaments found in specifically in neuronal cells. In the electron microscope neurofilaments appears as 10nm diameter fibres of indeterminate length which generally have fine wispy protrusions from their sides. They are found particularly abundantly in axons of large projection neurons. Antibodies to the various neurofilament subunits are very useful cell type markers since the proteins are among the most abundant of the nervous system, are expressed only in neurons, and are biochemically very stable.
View of mixed neuron/glial cultures stained with Neurofilament-M (red). The NF-M protein is assembled into neurofilaments which are found throughout the axons, dendrites and perikarya of these cells. Protocol an datasheet.
Neurofilament-M (NF-M) is the medium or middle runs at about 145-160kDa.

Image: Western blots of homogenates of SH-SY5Y cells, a human neuroblastoma cell line. Lane A shows blotting with Neurofilament-M, which reveals a strong NF-M band at ~150kDa. Lanes B and C are homogenates of SH-SY5Y cells which were treated with maitotoxin to activate caspase family enzymes (ref. 2). Now a ~100kDa band is seen in addition o the major NF-M band. This corresponds to the C-terminal segment of NF-M which is an in vivo calpain degradation product of human NF-M. Protocol on datasheet.
