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, though other proteins may also be present. 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 axonal processes in tissue sections and in culture. NF-H antibodies can also be useful in visualizing neurofilament accumulations seen in many neurological disorders, such as Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis (also known as Lou Gehrig’s disease), Alzheimer’s disease and following a traumatic injury.
