Abstract

Intermediate filaments represent a class of identical ultra-structure (intracellular filaments 70–100 Angstrom in diameter), yet biologically different according to their cell of origin, thus allowing the production of specific sera and monoclonal antibodies for their identification by histoimmunological technique (LAZARIDES E. 1980).
