Abstract

A protein of molecular size 180 kilodaltons is associated with 10-nanometer filaments in neurons and is immunologically distinct from smaller putative neurofilament subunits and from 10-nanometer filament proteins in non-neuronal cells, such as myotubes and fibroblasts. Neurons do not contain vimentin, the major filament protein in many other cells, including the nonneuronal cells in cultures of neural tissue.
