Gene: NEFL (neurofilament light) Homo sapiens
Symbol: NEFL
Name: neurofilament light
Description: Exhibits identical protein binding activity and protein C-terminus binding activity. Involved in axonal transport and neurofilament bundle assembly. Localizes to the axon and neurofilament. Implicated in Charcot-Marie-Tooth disease (multiple); amyotrophic lateral sclerosis; and invasive ductal carcinoma.
Type: protein-coding
RefSeq Status: REVIEWED
