  • Tested applications
    Suitable for: WB, ICC/IF, IHC-Pmore details
  • Species reactivity
    Reacts with: Mouse, Rat, Cow, Human
  • Immunogen

    Synthetic peptide conjugated to KLH, corresponding to amino acids 682-701 of Mouse KIF3A. This sequence is identical in human.

  • Positive control
    • Rat brain homogenate, PC12 cell line.
  • General notes
    Storage in frost-free freezers is not recommended. If slight turbidity occurs upon prolonged storage, clarify the solution by centrifugation before use.



Our Abpromise guarantee covers the use of ab11259 in the following tested applications.

The application notes include recommended starting dilutions; optimal dilutions/concentrations should be determined by the end user.

Application Abreviews Notes
WB 1/2000. Predicted molecular weight: 85 kDa. This concentration is determined by blotting using a rat brain homogenate and a whole cell extract of rat pheochromocytoma PC12 cell line. Staining of KIF3A is specifically inhibited by the KIF3A immunizing peptide.
ICC/IF Use at an assay dependent concentration.
IHC-P Use at an assay dependent concentration. PubMed: 20421870

  • ab11259 staining KIF3A in murine primary hippocampal neurons by Immunocytochemistry/ Immunofluorescence.
    Cells were fixed with methanol, blocked with 1% BSA for 1 hour at 22°C and then incubated with ab11259 at a 1/50 dilution for 2 hours at 22°C. The secondary used was a Cy3-conjugated donkey anti-rabbit polyclonal, used at a 1/500 dilution.
