Neurofilament light polypeptide, NF-L, NEFL, NF68, NFL, 68 kDa neurofilament protein.
NEFL or Neurofilament light polypeptide is a protein that is encoded through the NEFL gene. NEFL is correlated to a disease called Charcot–Marie–Tooth. The protein’s light subunit is determined by immunoassays in the plasma and cerebrospinal fluid, if present, it can indicate on axonal damage in neurological diseases. By doing so, NEFL can act as a marker for Huntington's disease, Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis and multiple sclerosis.
NEFL Human Recombinant produced in E.Coli is a single, non-glycosylated, polypeptide chain (2-543 a.a) containing 551 amino acids including a 9 a.a N-terminal His tag. The total molecular mass is 62.5kDa (calculated).
NEFL filtered (0.4 µm) and lyophilized from 0.5mg/ml solution in 15mM Tris and 85mM Glycine, pH 8.5.
It is recommended to add deionized water to prepare a working stock solution of approximately 0.5mg/ml and let the lyophilized pellet dissolve completely.
Greater than 90.0% as determined by SDS-PAGE.
