internexin neuronal intermediate filament protein alpha

ENTREZID: 9118 | Type: NA | Map: 10q24.33

OMIM: 300335

Summary Entrez
Neurofilaments are type IV intermediate filament heteropolymers composed of light, medium, and heavy chains. Neurofilaments comprise the axoskeleton and they functionally maintain the neuronal caliber. They may also play a role in intracellular transport to axons and dendrites. This gene is a member of the intermediate filament family and is involved in the morphogenesis of neurons. [provided by RefSeq, Jun 2009]
