Application Abreviews Notes
ICC/IF Use a concentration of 1 µg/ml.

IHC-P 1/250. Perform heat mediated antigen retrieval before commencing with IHC staining protocol.


  • FunctionMotor protein required for establishing a bipolar spindle. Blocking of KIF11 prevents centrosome migration and arrest cells in mitosis with monoastral microtubule arrays.
  • Involvement in diseaseDefects in KIF11 are the cause of microcephaly with or without chorioretinopathy, lymphedema, or mental retardation (MCLMR) [MIM:152950]. An autosomal dominant disorder that involves an overlapping but variable spectrum of central nervous system and ocular developmental anomalies. Microcephaly ranges from mild to severe and is often associated with mild to moderate developmental delay and a characteristic facial phenotype with upslanting palpebral fissures, broad nose with rounded tip, long philtrum with thin upper lip, prominent chin, and prominent ears. Chorioretinopathy is the most common eye abnormality, but retinal folds, microphthalmia, and myopic and hypermetropic astigmatism have also been reported, and some individuals have no overt ocular phenotype. Congenital lymphedema, when present, is typically confined to the dorsa of the feet, and lymphoscintigraphy reveals the absence of radioactive isotope uptake from the webspaces between the toes.
  • Sequence similaritiesBelongs to the kinesin-like protein family. BimC subfamily.
    Contains 1 kinesin-motor domain.
  • Post-translational
    Phosphorylated exclusively on serine during S phase, but on both serine and Thr-926 during mitosis, so controlling the association of KIF11 with the spindle apparatus (probably during early prophase). Phosphorylated upon DNA damage, probably by ATM or ATR.
    A subset of this protein primarily localized at the spindle pole is phosphorylated by NEK6 during mitosis; phosphorylation is required for mitotic function.
  • Cellular localizationCytoplasm. Cytoplasm > cytoskeleton > spindle pole.

  • ICC/IF image of ab37814 stained human HeLa cells. The cells were methanol fixed (5 min) and incubated with the antibody (ab37814, 1µg/ml) for 1h at room temperature. The secondary antibody (green) was Alexa Fluor® 488 goat anti-rabbit IgG (H+L) used at a 1/1000 dilution for 1h. Image-iTTM FX Signal Enhancer was used to quench autofluorescence.  5% BSA (in TBS-T) was used for all other blocking steps. DAPI was used to stain the cell nuclei (blue). Alexa Fluor® 594 WGA was used to label plasma membranes (red).

  • ab37814 (1/250) staining Eg5 in paraffin-embedded Human lung tissue.  Tissue underwent fixation in formaldehyde, peroxidase blocking, protein blocking and heat mediated antigen retrieval.  The secondary antibody was goat anti rabbit/mouse conjugated to HRP.  For further experimental details please refer to abreview.
