Anti-NF-M (Neurofilament 160 kDa) Antibody

Aves Labs Logo from Aves Labs

 Datasheet

Product Summary:

NFM protein was purified from bovine spinal cords following the method of Delacourte et al. ["Study of the 10-nm-filament fraction isolated during the standard microtubule prepartion" (1980). Biochem. J. 191(2): 543-546], followed by Prepcell purification (Bio-Rad). Antibodies were prepared by injecting purified NFM protein into laying hens and purifying the IgY fraction from eggs collected from hyper-immunized hens. After several boosts, hens were co-boosted with recombinant NFM protein expressed in bacteria. These antibodies have been validated with human, mouse and rat tissues.

Target Description:

Human Neurofilament Medium Chain (NFM) is a 102,448 dalton protein (916 amino acids) expressed in CNS and PNS neurons. This cytoskeletal protein is normally phosphorylated in vivo and its extent of phosphorylation correlates with different states of axonal growth and stabilization. These observations have led to the hypothesis that the NFM protein cross-links adjacent neurofilament strands and contributes to the structural integrity of the axon.

Immunogen:

NFM protein was purified from bovine spinal cords following the method of Delacourte et al. [“Study of the 10-nm-filament fraction isolated during the standard microtubule prepartion” (1980). Biochem. J. 191(2): 543-546], followed by Prepcell purification (Bio-Rad). Antibodies were prepared by injecting purified NFM protein into laying hens. After repeated injections into the hens, immune eggs were collected, and the IgY fractions were purified from the yolks. Antibodies were diluted in the buffer described above, and then filter-sterilized.
