  • Function
    Microtubule-dependent motor required for normal distribution of mitochondria and lysosomes.
  • Sequence similarities
    Belongs to the TRAFAC class myosin-kinesin ATPase superfamily. Kinesin family. Kinesin subfamily.
    Contains 1 kinesin motor domain.
  • Domain
    Composed 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 localization
    Cytoplasm, cytoskeleton. Uniformly distributed between soma and neurites in hippocampal neurons.

    Predicted band size: 110 kDa

    Blocking and diluting buffer: 5% NFDM/TBST

  • ab167429 (purified) at 1:20 dilution (2μg) immunoprecipitating KIF5B in HeLa (Human cervix adenocarcinoma epithelial cell) whole cell lysate.

    Lane 1 (input): HeLa (Human cervix adenocarcinoma epithelial cell) whole cell lysate 10μg
    Lane 2 (+): ab167429 & HeLa (Human cervix adenocarcinoma epithelial cell) whole cell lysate
    Lane 3 (-): Rabbit monoclonal IgG (ab172730) instead of ab167429 in HeLa (Human cervix adenocarcinoma epithelial cell) whole cell lysate

    For western blotting, VeriBlot for IP secondary antibody (HRP) (ab131366) was used as the secondary antibody at 1:1000 dilution.
    Blocking and diluting buffer: 5% NFDM/TBST.

  • Flow Cytometry analysis of HepG2 (Human hepatocellular carcinoma epithelial cell) cells labeling KIF5B with purified ab167429 at 1:20 dilution (10 µg/ml) (red). Cells were fixed with 4% Paraformaldehyde and permeabilised with 90% methanol. A Goat anti rabbit IgG (Alexa Fluor® 488) secondary antibody was used at 1:2000 dilution. Isotype control - Rabbit monoclonal IgG (Black). Unlabeled control - Cell without incubation with primary antibody and secondary antibody (Blue).

  • Immunohistochemistry (Formalin/PFA-fixed paraffin-embedded sections) analysis of Human breast carcinoma tissue sections labeling KIF5B with Purified ab167429 at 1:250 dilution (0.07 μg/ml). Heat mediated antigen retrieval was performed using ab93684 (Tris/EDTA buffer, pH 9.0). Tissue was counterstained with Hematoxylin. ImmunoHistoProbe one step HRP Polymer (ready to use) secondary antibody was used at 1:0 dilution. PBS instead of the primary antibody was used as the negative control.

    Unpurified ab167429 was shown to specifically react with KIF5B in wild-type cells as signal was lost in KIF5B knockout cells. Wild-type and KIF5B knockout samples were subjected to SDS-PAGE. Ab167429 and ab9484 (Mouse anti-GAPDH loading control) were incubated overnight at 4°C at 1/1000 dilution and 1/20000 dilution respectively. Blots were developed with Goat anti-Rabbit IgG H&L (IRDye® 800CW) preabsorbed ab216773 and Goat anti-Mouse IgG H&L (IRDye® 680RD) preabsorbed ab216776 secondary antibodies at 1/20000 dilution for 1 hour at room temperature before imaging.

  • Immunocytochemistry/Immunofluorescence analysis HepG2(human hepatocellular carcinoma) labelling KIF5B with purified ab167429 at 1/500. Cells were fixed with 4% PFA and permeabilized with 0.1% Triton X-100. An Alexa Fluor® 488-conjugated goat anti-rabbit IgG (1/1000) was used as the secondary antibody (Ab150077). Nuclei counterstained with DAPI (blue).
