The application notes include recommended starting dilutions; optimal dilutions/concentrations should be determined by the end user.
1/2000 - 1/10000. Detects a band of approximately 170 kDa (predicted molecular weight: 140 kDa).
Use at 2-5 µg/mg of lysate.
Motor protein that translocates PRC1 to the plus ends of interdigitating spindle microtubules during the metaphase to anaphase transition, an essential step for the formation of an organized central spindle midzone and midbody and for successful cytokinesis. May play a role in mitotic chromosomal positioning and bipolar spindle stabilization.
Highly expressed in hematopoietic tissues, fetal liver, spleen, thymus and adult thymus and bone marrow. Lower levels are found in heart, testis, kidney, colon and lung.
Belongs to the kinesin-like protein family. Chromokinesin subfamily. Contains 1 kinesin-motor domain.
Nucleus matrix. Cytoplasm > cytoskeleton > spindle. Midbody. Chromosome. Not present in the nucleolus. In early mitosis, associated with the mitotic spindle, in anaphase, localized to the spindle midzone and, in telophase and cytokinesis, to the midbody. In late cytokinesis, found in the center of the midbody. Associated with chromosomes at all stages of mitosis.
