Neurofilament H antibody | RT97
Mouse anti Rat Neurofilament 200kDa antibody, clone RT97 also recognizes a phosphorylation dependent epitope on fetal tau, Alzheimer's paired helical filament-tau and on microtubule associated protein 1B (MAP1B) by western blotting, however similar reactivity was not apparent in immunohistochemical studies (Johnstone et al. 1997).
