Neurofilament medium polypeptide (IPR027697)
Short name: NF-M
Overlapping homologous superfamilies
- Intermediate filament protein (IPR001664)
- Neurofilament medium polypeptide (IPR027697)
Neurofilament triplet proteins, NF-L, NF-M, and NF-H (light, medium, and heavy), are type IV intermediate filament proteins [PMID: 17498690]. They are essential for the radial growth of axons during development, the maintenance of axon caliber and the transmission of electrical impulses along axons [PMID: 22956720].
This entry represents the NF-M subunit.
