The application notes include recommended starting dilutions; optimal dilutions/concentrations should be determined by the end user.
1/2000 - 1/10000. Detects a band of approximately 238 kDa (predicted molecular weight: 203 kDa).
Use at 2-5 µg/mg of lysate.
FunctionPlus end-directed microtubule-dependent motor protein involved in intracellular transport and regulating various processes such as mannose-6-phosphate receptor (M6PR) transport to the plasma membrane, endosomal sorting during melanosome biogenesis and cytokinesis. Mediates the transport of M6PR-containing vesicles from trans-Golgi network to the plasma membrane via direct interaction with the AP-1 complex. During melanosome maturation, required for delivering melanogenic enzymes from recycling endosomes to nascent melanosomes by creating peripheral recycling endosomal subdomains in melanocytes. Also required for the abcission step in cytokinesis: mediates translocation of ZFYVE26, and possibly TTC19, to the midbody during cytokinesis.
Tissue specificityWidely expressed, with highest levels in heart, brain and skeletal muscle.
Sequence similaritiesBelongs to the kinesin-like protein family. Contains 1 FHA domain. Contains 1 kinesin-motor domain.
Developmental stageExpressed at very low level in most fetal tissues, but at higher levels in skeletal muscle and lung.
Cellular localizationCytoplasm > cytoskeleton > centrosome. Midbody. Endosome membrane. Golgi apparatus membrane. Recruited to the midbody during cytokinesis.
