The application notes include recommended starting dilutions; optimal dilutions/concentrations should be determined by the end user.
Use a concentration of 1 µg/ml. Detects a band of approximately 125 kDa (predicted molecular weight: 110 kDa).
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.
