The application notes include recommended starting dilutions; optimal dilutions/concentrations should be determined by the end user.
Use a concentration of 5 µg/ml.
Use a concentration of 2 µg/ml. Detects a band of approximately 200 kDa (predicted molecular weight: 204 kDa).
KIF1B, or kinesin-like protein (Klp) functions as a motor for mitochondrial transport, and has a microtubule plus end-directed motility. The KIF1B beta isoform is abundant in brain, while the alpha isoform is abundant in skeletal muscle. Mutations in the KIF1B gene are the cause of Charcot-Marie-Tooth disease type 2A1, which is a primary peripheral axon neuropathy. The KIF1B beta isoform is down-regulated in sporadic amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS).
ICC/IF image of ab69614 stained PC12 cells. The cells were 4% PFA fixed (10 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 (ab69614, 5µg/ml) overnight at +4°C. The secondary antibody (green) was Alexa Fluor® 488 goat anti-rabbit IgG (H+L) used at a 1/1000 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.
