α-internexin is a Class IV intermediate filament protein originally discovered by two different groups of researchers as it copurifies with NF-L, NF-M and NF-H, the then better known major neurofilament “triplet” subunits. It is expressed only in neurons and in large amounts early in neuronal development, but is down-regulated in many neurons as development proceeds. Some neurons express α-internexin in the absence of NF-L, NF-M and NF-H, though most mature neurons express all four proteins. This α-internexin antibody has been shown, in peer reviewed publications, to reveal the upregulation of α-internexin in facial neurons following experimental axotomy followed by down regulation on axonal regeneration. It is also the standard reagent used to identify and classify patients with neurofilament inclusion body disease, a specific form of frontotemporal lobar dementia. Finally, it has been used to confirm the presence of circulating antibodies to α-internexin in the blood of certain patients with endocrine autoimmunity.
