Term Information [More information on neurofilament]

Accession
GO:0005883
Name
neurofilament
Ontology
cellular_component
Synonyms
type IV intermediate filament
Definition
A type of intermediate filament found in the core of neuronal axons. Neurofilaments are heteropolymers composed of three type IV polypeptides: NF-L, NF-M, and NF-H (for low, middle, and high molecular weight). Neurofilaments are responsible for the radial growth of an axon and determine axonal diameter. Source: ISBN:0716731363, ISBN:0198506732, ISBN:0815316194
