IHC staining of Alexa Fluor® 488 anti-Neurofilament L (NF-L) antibody (clone NFL3) on formalin-fixed paraffin-embedded human brain tissue. Following antigen retrieval using Sodium Citrate H.I.E.R. (Cat. No. 928602), the tissue was incubated with 10 µg/ml of the primary antibody overnight at 4°C. The image was captured with a 40X objective. Scale bar: 50 µm

Description

Neurofilaments (NF) are type IV intermediate filament heteropolymers composed of light, medium, and heavy chains. Detection of NF, and the subunits of NF, may serve as a biomarker for axonal degeneration. The degree of axonal degeneration is related to the amount of NF detected in the cerebrospinal fluid (CSF) and the blood. Neurofilament light (NF-L) levels are elevated in Alzheimer’s Disease.
