Technical Data
KIF5B (Kinesin-1 Heavy Chain, Conventional Kinesin Heavy Chain, Ubiquitous Kinesin Heavy Chain, UKHC, KNS, KNS1)
KIF5B is a kinesin. These are microtubule based motor proteins involved in the transport of organelles in eukaryotic cells. They typically consist of 2 identical, approximately 110 to 120kD heavy chains and 2 identical, approximately 60 to 70kD light chains. The heavy chain contains 3 domains: a globular N terminal motor domain, which converts the chemical energy of ATP into a motile force along microtubules in 1 fixed direction; a central alpha helical rod domain, which enables the 2 heavy chains to dimerize; and a globular C terminal domain, which interacts with light chains and possibly an organelle receptor.

Suitable for use in ELISA, Western Blot and Immunohistochemistry. Other applications not tested.

Recommended Dilution:
ELISA: 1:32,000
Western Blot: 0.5-1.5ug/ml, observed in lysates of the cell lines Jurkat and HeLa on ~110kD bands
