The application notes include recommended starting dilutions; optimal dilutions/concentrations should be determined by the end user.
Use a concentration of 1 µg/ml. Predicted molecular weight: 93 kDa. Good results were obtained when blocked with 5% non-fat dry milk in 0.05% PBS-T.
Use at an assay dependent concentration.
ELISA titre using peptide based assay: 1/312500.
FunctionMinus-end microtubule-dependent motor protein. Involved in apically targeted transport (By similarity). Required for zonula adherens maintenance.
Sequence similaritiesBelongs to the kinesin-like protein family. Contains 1 kinesin-motor domain.
Cellular localizationCell junction > adherens junction. Cytoplasm > cytoskeleton > centrosome. Cytoplasmic vesicle membrane. Apical cell membrane. On membrane organelles immediately beneath the apical plasma membrane of renal tubular epithelial cells. Localized in the distal tubules and loops of Henle in the kidney, but not in the proximal tubules or the glomeruli, with stronger staining in the apical area of these epithelial cells (By similarity). Localizes along zonula adherens only at mature cell-cell contacts.
