Application Abreviews Notes
ICC/IF Use a concentration of 1 µg/ml.
IHC-P 1/1000 - 1/5000. Perform heat mediated antigen retrieval with Tris/EDTA buffer pH 9.0 before commencing with IHC staining protocol.
WB 1/2000 - 1/10000. Detects a band of approximately 74 kDa (predicted molecular weight: 74 kDa).
IP Use at 2-5 µg/mg of lysate.


  • Function
    Minus end-directed microtubule-dependent motor required for bipolar spindle formation. May contribute to movement of early endocytic vesicles.
  • Sequence similarities
    Belongs to the kinesin-like protein family. NCD subfamily.
    Contains 1 kinesin-motor domain.
  • Cellular localization
    Nucleus. Cytoplasm > cytoskeleton > centrosome. Cytoplasm > cytoskeleton > spindle. Early endosome. Associated with nucleus during interphase, centrosomes in early and spindle in later mitosis.

  • Immunohistochemistry (Formalin/PFA-fixed paraffin-embedded sections) analysis of human ovarian carcinoma tissue labelling KIFC1 with ab72452 at 1/5000 (0.2µg/ml). Detection: DAB.
  • ICC/IF image of ab72452 stained T47D 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 ab72452 at 1µg/ml overnight at +4°C. The secondary antibody (green) was DyLight® 488 goat anti- rabbit (ab96899) IgG (H+L) used at a 1/250 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.

    Predicted band size: 74 kDa
    Observed band size: 74 kDa
    Additional bands at: 220 kDa, 300 kDa, 33 kDa. We are unsure as to the identity of these extra bands.

    Exposure time: 3 minutes
  • HeLa whole cell lysate, (1 mg for IP, 20% of IP loaded) treated with ab72452 at 3µg/mg lysate for IP, and at 1µg/ml for subsequent WB.
    Detection: Chemiluminescence with an exposure time of 30 seconds.

Thank you for contacting us and sharing that information with us.

I am sorry for the confusion caused by the western blot presented on the datasheet of ab55388. The band observed in this Western blot was indeed ˜34 kDa. However, the sample lo...

Following on my previous message, of the five KIFC1 antibodies in our catalogue, I think the best choice for mouse samples is ab72453, given the high homology between the immunogen, a peptide derived from the N terminus of human KIFC1, and the same reg...
