Application Abreviews Notes
WB 1/200. Detects a band of approximately 95 kDa (predicted molecular weight: 79 kDa).Can be blocked with KLC1 peptide (ab4992).

This antibody detects a ~95 kDa protein representing KIF 2 from mouse brain homogenate.


  • Function
    Plus end-directed microtubule-dependent motor required for normal brain development. May regulate microtubule dynamics during axonal growth. Required for normal progression through mitosis. Required for normal congress of chromosomes at the metaphase plate. Required for normal spindle dynamics during mitosis. Promotes spindle turnover. Implicated in formation of bipolar mitotic spindles. Has microtubule depolymerization activity.
  • Sequence similarities
    Belongs to the kinesin-like protein family. MCAK/KIF2 subfamily.
    Contains 1 kinesin-motor domain.
  • Cellular localization
    Cytoplasm. Cytoplasm > cytoskeleton > centrosome. Cytoplasm > cytoskeleton > spindle pole. Cytoplasm > cytoskeleton > spindle. Localized to the spindle microtubules and spindle poles from prophase to metaphase. Efficient targeting to spindle microtubules and spindle poles requires the kinase activity of PLK1. Recruited to mitotic spindles by interaction with PSRC1.
