||Neurofilaments contain three intermediate filament proteins: light (68 kDa), medium (160 kDa) and heavy (200 kDa). Neurofilament heavy (NF200 or NF-H) is phosphorylated and it is thought that this results in the formation of interfilament cross bridges that are important in the maintenance of axonal caliber.

||Full length native protein (purified) from Pig spinal cord.
||NF-200; NF200; NF-H; NEFH; N52; Neurofilament heavy polypeptide; Neurofilament triplet H protein; 200 kDa neurofilament protein; KIAA0845; NFH;
||Western Blotting (WB), Immunocytochemistry (IC) and Flow Cytometry (2 ug/10^6 cells). Suggested dilution for WB of 1:5,000-10,000. This antibody recognises NF-H in frozen sections, tissue culture and in formalin-fixed sections. Suggested dilution for IC is 1:500-1,000. Biosensis recommends optimal dilutions/concentrations should be determined by the end user.
||The specificity of this antibody has been confirmed by WB. This antibody recognises phosphorylated NF-H KSP (lysine-serine-proline) type sequences. In some species there is some cross-reactivity with the related KSP sequences found in subunit NF-M.
||Neurofilament Heavy, phosphorylated
||Chicken, Rat. Predicted to react with mammals due to sequence homology.
||Lyophilised with 5% trehalose
||Reconstitute in sterile distilled water. Centrifuge to remove any insoluble material.
||After reconstitution of lyophilised antibody, aliquot and store at -20°C for a higher stability. Avoid freeze-thaw cycles.
