NFL one of the three (L, M, and H) intermediate filament proteins that form neurofilaments. Neurofilaments are involved in the maintenance of neuronal caliber. NF-L is the most abundant of the three neurofilament proteins. Defects cause Charcot-Marie-Tooth disease type 1F (CMT1F). Note: This description may include information from UniProtKB.
