Gene: NEFM (neurofilament medium) Homo sapiens
Symbol: NEFM
Name: neurofilament medium
Description: Predicted to have microtubule binding activity. Predicted to be involved in neurofilament bundle assembly. Localizes to the intermediate filament cytoskeleton and neurofibrillary tangle. Implicated in Alzheimer's disease.
Type: protein-coding
RefSeq Status: REVIEWED
