  • Application notesIs unsuitable for ICC/IF or IHC.
  • Target

    • FunctionKinesin is a microtubule-associated force-producing protein that may play a role in organelle transport. The light chain may function in coupling of cargo to the heavy chain or in the modulation of its ATPase activity.
    • Tissue specificityFound in a variety of tissues. Mostly abundant in brain and spine.
    • Sequence similaritiesBelongs to the kinesin light chain family.
      Contains 6 TPR repeats.
    • Post-translational
      Isoform I is phosphorylated on Ser-600. Isoform J is phosphorylated on Ser-631.
    • Cellular localizationCytoplasm > cytoskeleton.

    Thank you for your reply. I would recommend to incubate the membrane in 5%BSA (in TBST Tween20 0.1%) for 30min-1hour, then rinsing lightly (5 seconds) in TBST, and incubating the primary in TBST only.This should block well but not excessively. I hope t...
