Neurofilaments (NFs) are heteropolymers composed of light (NF-L), middle (NF-M), and heavy (NF-H) subunits, present in most neurons. NF-L polymerizes on its own to provide a scaffold on which regular NFs form via the cross-bridging of NF-M or NF-H. To clarify the mechanism of regulation of NF-L self-assembly, we developed an assay using truncated mutant(More)
Neurofilaments (NFs) are neuronal intermediate filaments composed of light (NF-L), middle (NF-M), and heavy (NF-H) subunits. NF-L self-assembles into a "core" filament with which NF-M or NF-H co-assembles to form the neuronal intermediate filament. Recent reports show that point mutations of the NF-L gene result in Charcot-Marie-Tooth disease (CMT).(More)
