Western blot analysis of selected proteins in the brain such as glial fibrillary acidic protein (GFAP), synaptophysin and neurofilament (NF) at increasing PMI and quantitation (normalized against tubulin) showed no significant change in GFAP signal in FC, CB and CD, while SN revealed a significant increase in GFAP signal (Fig.
Whether these unusual neurofilament deposits were a cause or a consequence of motor neurons dying has been a mystery.
For example, neurofilament staining will highlight entrapped axons in the middle of an infiltrative tumor.

In response to serum starvation or treatment with retinoic acid (RA) or dibutyryl cyclic AMP, N2a cells undergo neuronal differentiation characterized by cell cycle arrest, neurite outgrowth, and up-regulation of neurofilament (NF) proteins (Dasgupta and Milbrandt 2007).
The interesting work carried out by Savory and his co-workers on the quantitation of Al in the brain and spinal cord and its effects on neurofilament protein expression and phosphorylation provided new evidence for the involvement of Al in AD (42).
