  • Scientific Background Neurofilaments can be defined as the intermediate or 10nm diameter filaments found in neuronal cells. They are composed a mixture of subunits which often includes the neurofilament triplet proteins, NF-L, NF-M and NF-H. Neurofilaments may also include peripherin, alpha-internexin, nestin and in some cases vimentin. Alpha-internexin is a ~66 kDa Class IV intermediate filament subunit expressed in large amounts early in neuronal development, but is downregulated in many neurons as development procedes. Many classes of mature neurons contain alpha-internexin in addition to NF-L, NF-M and NF-H. In some mature neurons alpha-internexin is the only neurofilament subunit expressed. Antibodies to alpha-internexin are therefore unique probes to study and classify neuronal types and follow their processes in sections and in tissue culture. In addition the very early developmental expression of alpha-internexin means its presence is an early and convenient diagnostic feature of neuronal progenitors cells and other cell committed to the neuronal lineage.

    Images, Protocols & SDS

  • Mixed neuron glia cultures stain with Chicken polyclonal antibody to Internexin alpha C-1377-50 (red) and counterstained with Rabbit polyclonal antibody to Coronin 1a: Whole serum, R-1335-50 (green) which is an excellent marker of microglia and lymphocytes. This internexin antibody is an excellent marker of neuronal processes in these cultures.

  • Left: Fluorescent staining of rat cerebellum section by Immunohistochemistry with chicken antibody to alpha-internexin (1:5,000, red), and co-stained with mouse antibody to MBP (M-1384-50, 1:5,000, green). IHC Method: Following transcardial perfusion with 4% PFA, brain was post fixed for 24 hours, cut to 45 uM, and free-floating sections were stained. The alpha-internexin antibody selectively stains axons and dendrites of neuronal cells, in particular Purkinje cells, parallel fibers and the axons of granule cells, while the MBP antibody stains myelin sheathes around axons. Right: Western blot analysis of alpha-internexin expression in tissue lysates. [1] protein standard, [2] rat brain, [3] rat spinal cord, [4] mouse brain, [5] mouse spinal cord, [6] cow spinal cord, [7] pig spinal cord. The antibody reveals the alpha-internexin protein with apparent molecular weight of 64 to 66 kDa, with some variability among different species. Antibody dilution: 1:10,000.
