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

Application Abreviews Notes
ICC/IF 1/250.
WB Use a concentration of 0.5 µg/ml. Detects a band of approximately 110 kDa (predicted molecular weight: 110 kDa).Can be blocked with Human KIF5B peptide (ab41782).
IP Use at an assay dependent concentration.


  • FunctionMicrotubule-dependent motor required for normal distribution of mitochondria and lysosomes.
  • Sequence similaritiesBelongs to the TRAFAC class myosin-kinesin ATPase superfamily. Kinesin family. Kinesin subfamily.
    Contains 1 kinesin motor domain.
  • DomainComposed of three structural domains: a large globular N-terminal domain which is responsible for the motor activity of kinesin (it hydrolyzes ATP and binds microtubule), a central alpha-helical coiled coil domain that mediates the heavy chain dimerization; and a small globular C-terminal domain which interacts with other proteins (such as the kinesin light chains), vesicles and membranous organelles.
  • Cellular localizationCytoplasm, cytoskeleton. Uniformly distributed between soma and neurites in hippocampal neurons.

Anti-KIF5B antibody images

  • ab5629 labelling KIF5B (green) in HeLa cells. Cells fixed in 3.2% paraformaldehyde and permeabilized with 0.2% Triton X-100 for 30 minutes at 37ºC were blocked with 3% BSA in PBS for 30 minutes at room temperature. Cells were incubated with the primary antibody (1:250) overnight at 4°C. A fluorescently-conjugated Goat anti-rabbit IgG was used as the secondary antibody (1:2000). Images were taken on wide-field fluorescent microscope at 63X magnification.

  • Predicted band size : 110 kDa

    Shows ab5629 used for a Western blot of Mouse neuronal cell extract.

  • ab5629 at 1/200 dilution staining the mouse oligodendrocyte cell line, Olineu, by immunocytochemistry. The antibody was incubated with the cells for 30 minutes and then detected using a Cy3 conjugated secondary antibody.
