Application Abreviews Notes
ICC/IF Use at an assay dependent dilution. PubMed: 16648480
WB 1/2000 - 1/10000. Predicted molecular weight: 190 kDa.
IP Use a concentration of 1 - 4 µg/ml.


  • Function

    Plays an essential role in cytokinesis.
  • Sequence similarities

    Belongs to the kinesin-like protein family.
    Contains 1 FHA domain.
    Contains 1 kinesin-motor domain.
  • Developmental stage

    Up-regulated in cells progressing through G2/M phase.
  • Cellular localization

    Nucleus. Cytoplasm. Cytoplasm > cytoskeleton > spindle. Nuclear localization observed during interphase in PubMed:16431929 or triggered by entry into mitosis in PubMed:16648480. Cytoplasmic in interphase (PubMed:16648480) and metaphase cells (PubMed:16431929). From prophase to metaphase, accumulates at the developing spindle poles and their associated microtubules. During anaphase, accumulates at the spindle midzone. Localization to the central spindle and midbody during anaphase is dependent upon PRC1 and CIT presence. In cells ready to undergo abscission, concentrates at the contractile ring.

  • Sample: Hela whole cell lysate

    1) WB - 50µg.

    2) IP - 1mg.


    Antibody: Affinity purified Rabbit anti-KIF (ab3746)

    1) & 2) WB - 1 / 4000 dilution.

    2) IP - concentration of 3µg / mg of lysate.


    Detection: ECL.


  • ICC/IF image of ab3746 stained MCF7 cells. The cells were 100% methanol fixed (5 min) and then incubated in 1%BSA / 10% normal goat serum / 0.3M glycine in 0.1% PBS-Tween for 1h to permeabilise the cells and block non-specific protein-protein interactions. The cells were then incubated with the antibody (ab3746, 5µg/ml) overnight at +4°C. The secondary antibody (green) was Alexa Fluor® 488 goat anti-rabbit IgG (H+L) used at a 1/1000 dilution for 1h. Alexa Fluor® 594 WGA was used to label plasma membranes (red) at a 1/200 dilution for 1h. DAPI was used to stain the cell nuclei (blue) at a concentration of 1.43µM.
