Neurofilament (NF-H) (Neuronal Marker); Clone RT97 (Concentrate)
Immunogen: Triton-X 100 insoluble protein fraction of rat brain
Species Reactivity: Human, Mouse, Rat, Pig and Chicken. Others not known.
Positive Control: Brain, Neuroblastoma.
Specificity: This antibody reacts with a 200kDa protein, identified as the heavy subunit of neurofilaments (NF-H). Anti-neurofilament stains a number of neural, neuroendocrine, and endocrine tumors. Neuromas, ganglioneuromas, gangliogliomas, ganglioneuroblastomas, and neuroblastomas stain positively for anti-neurofilament. Neurofilaments are also present in paragangliomas as well as adrenal and extra-adrenal pheochromocytomas. Carcinoids, neuroendocrine carcinomas of the skin, and oat cell carcinomas of the lung also express neurofilament.
