  • Target

    • 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.

    Thank you for contacting Abcam regarding ab23664.

    I have run the BLAST search using the immunogen sequence for this antibody. I am only pulling up 100% with the heavy chain of kinesin-1. None of the other kinesins come up. I would predict th...
