Application DetailsImmunohistochemistry (IHC) and Western Blotting (WB). A concentration of 0.50 µg/mL is recommended for WB. Human NF200 has a predicted length of 1026 residues and MW of 112 kDa. A concentration of 1.0-2.0 µg/mL is recommended to detect NF200 in formalin fixed and paraffin embedded tissues as well as formalin/acetone fixed tissues. Biosensis recommends optimal dilutions/concentrations should be determined by the end user.

Scientific BackgroundNeurofilaments 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. This antibody recognises both phosphorylated and dephosphorylated forms of NF200/NF-H.
