Neurofilament 200kD Novocastra
Neurofilaments constitute the main structural elements of neuronal axons and dendrites.
Neurofilaments are composed of three major subunits referred to as the neurofilament triplet, with molecular weights of 68 kD, 160kD and 200 kD.
Neurofilament subunits are reported to be present in neurons, neuronal processes, peripheral nerves and sympathetic ganglion cells.
Within tumors, only neoplastic cells of neural origin or those exhibiting neuronal differentiation, have been reported to express neurofilaments.
