  • Anti-KIFC1 antibody [11445] (ab172620) at 1/50000 dilution (Purified) + HeLa (Human cervix adenocarcinoma epithelial cell) whole cell lysates at 15 µg

    Goat Anti-Rabbit IgG H&L (HRP) (ab97051) at 1/20000 dilution

    Predicted band size: 74 kDa
    Observed band size: 74 kDa

  • Lane 1: Wild-type HAP1 whole cell lysate (20 µg)
    Lane 2: KIFC1 knockout HAP1 whole cell lysate (20 µg)
    Lane 3: HeLa whole cell lysate (20 µg)
    Lane 4: HepG2 whole cell lysate (20 µg)

    Lanes 1 - 4: Merged signal (red and green). Green - ab172620 (purified) observed at 74 kDa. Red - loading control, ab9484, observed at 37 kDa.

    ab172620 was shown to specifically react with KIFC1 in wild-type cells as signal was lost in KIFC1 knockout cells. Wild-type and KIFC1 knockout samples were subjected to SDS-PAGE. Ab172620 and ab9484 (Mouse anti-GAPDH loading control) were incubated overnight at 4°C at 0.228 µg/ml 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.

Perform heat mediated antigen retrieval using ab93684 (Tris/EDTA buffer, pH 9.0). ImmunoHistoProbe one step HRP Polymer (ready to use) was used as the secondary antibody. Negative control: PBS instead of the primary antibody. Hematoxylin was used as a counterstain.
  • Immunocytochemistry/ Immunofluorescence analysis of HeLa (Human cervix adenocarcinoma epithelial cell) cells labeling KIFC1 with purified ab172620 at 1/50 dilution (4.0 µg/ml).

Goat anti rabbit IgG (Alexa Fluor® 488, ab150077) was used as the secondary antibody at 1/1000 (2 µg/ml) dilution. DAPI (blue) was used as nuclear counterstain. PBS instead of the primary antibody was used as the secondary antibody only control.
