A_SMI312_PURE_NFMarker_CktlAb_IHCP_RatOrig_011816
IHC staining of purified anti-Neurofilament Marker (pan axonal, cocktail) antibody (clone SMI 312) on formalin-fixed paraffin-embedded rat brain tissue. Following antigen retrieval using Retrieval-ALL Antigen Unmasking System 3 (Cat. No. 927601), the tissue was incubated with 1 µg/ml of the primary antibody overnight at 4°C. BioLegend’s Ultra Streptavidin (USA) HRP Detection Kit (Multi-Species, DAB, Cat. No. 929901) was used for detection followed by hematoxylin counterstaining, according to the protocol provided. The image was captured with a 40X objective.

Description

Neurofilaments (NF) are approximately 10 nanometer intermediate filaments found in neurons. They are a major component of the neuronal cytoskeleton and their function is primarily to provide structural support for the axon and to regulate axon diameter. There are three major NF subunits, and the names given to these subunits are based upon the apparent molecular mass of the mammalian subunits on SDS-PAGE. The light or lowest (NF-L) runs at 68-70 kD, the medium or middle (NF-M) runs at about 145-160 kD, and the heavy or highest (NF-H) runs at 200-220 kD. However, the actual molecular weight of these proteins is considerably lower due to the highly charged C-terminal regions of the molecules. The level of NF gene expression correlates with the axonal diameter, which controls how fast electrical signals travel down the axon. Mutant mice with NF abnormalities have phenotypes resembling amyotrophic lateral sclerosis. NF immunostaining is common in diagnostic neuropathology. It is useful for differentiating neurons (positive for NF) from glia (negative for NF).

SMI 312 is a mixture of monoclonal antibodies that react against complex networks of axons. It is directed against extensively phosphorylated axonal epitopes on neurofilaments M and H. SMI 312 has been selected to provide a specific marker for axons in tissue sections and cultures. In contrast to individual anti-phosphoneurofilament antibodies that identify different subsets of neurofilament phosphoepitopes, which are suitable for defining functional and regional differences in normal and pathologic axons, SMI 312 is a convenient marker for axons in general. SMI 312 visualizes axons in an area-specific maturation pattern in human fetal brain. The antibody cocktail defines nuclear borderlines and is useful in establishing early connectivity with SMI 311, anti-neurofilament (not phosphorylated) identified dendrites. SMI 312 visualizes aberrantly sprouting axons in neuritic plaques derived from cortico-cortical fibers in Alzheimer's disease and identifies loss of synaptic circuitry proposed to be the basis of memory.
