Anti-Alpha Internexin antibody recognizes alpha-internexin which is a Class IV intermediate filament originally discovered as it co-purifies with other neurofilament subunits. Alpha-internexin is related to but distinct from the better known neurofilament triplet proteins, NF-L, NF-M and NF-H, having similar protein sequence motifs and a similar intron organization. It is expressed only in neurons and in large amounts early in neuronal development, but is down-regulated in many neurons as development proceeds. Many classes of mature neurons contain alpha-internexin in addition to NF-L, NF-M and NF-H. In some mature neurons alpha-internexin is the only neurofilament subunit expressed. Antibodies to alpha-internexin are therefore unique probes to study and classify neuronal types and follow their processes in sections and in tissue culture. In addition, recent studies show a marked up-regulation of alpha-internexin during neuronal regeneration. The use of antibodies to this protein in the study of brain tumors has not been examined to date, but is likely to be of interest. Recently Cairns et al. used this antibody to show that alpha-internexin is an abundant component of the inclusions of neurofilament inclusion body disease (NFID), a serious human neurodegenerative disorder. The antibody was also used to confirm the presence of circulating auto-antibodies to alpha-internexin in the sera of some patients with endocrine autoimmunity, as well as in some normal individuals. Anti-Alpha Internexin antibody is ideal for investigators involved in Cell Signaling, Neuroscience, Signal Transduction research.

Application Note

Anti-Alpha Internexin antibody is tested for use in ELISA, Western Blotting, IHC and ICC. Specific conditions for reactivity should be optimized by the end user. Expect a band of approximately 66kDa in size corresponding to alpha internexin proteins in the appropriate cell lysate or extract. Anti-Alpha Internexin antibody can be used on formalin-fixed cells in tissue culture, cryostat sections. The epitope recognized by the ID2 clone is in the C-terminal non-helical extension of the protein and is unusually resistant to aldehyde fixation, so that this antibody is ideal for studies of paraffin embedded formalin fixed histological sections.


Anti-Alpha Internexin Antibody is directed against rat Alpha Internexin. The antibody is protein G purified from cell culture supernatant. Reactivity is expected against human and mouse. Cross reactivity from other sources has not been determined.
