Immunogen: Partially purified native kinesin from see urchin egg cytosol
Alternate Gene Names:
Alternate Antibody Name:
Alternate Antigen Name:
Epitope Mapped: Yes
Myeloma Strain: P3x635-68.653
Epitope Location or Sequence: Head region of kinesin heavy chain containing the microtubule-binding region. The epitope is located on aa 336-390 of the Drosophila kinesin heavy chain which corresponds to aa 328-382 of the urchin protein.
Additional Information: In mice, SUK 4 recognizes the three kinesin-1 KIF5A, KIF5B and KIF5C, with a more intense stainning for KIF5A [PMID: 10964943]. In any publications that result from the use of SUK 2, 4, or 5 antibody, Dr. Jonathan Scholey requests that the following be cited: Ingold, A.L., Cohn, S.A., and Scholey, J.M. (1988).

Storage and Handling Recommendations
Although many cell products are maintained at 4°C for years without loss of activity, shelf-life at 4°C is highly variable.
To ensure retention of antibody activity, we recommend aliquotting the product into two parts:
1) a volume of antibody stored at 4°C to be used within two weeks.
2) the remaining product diluted with an equal volume of molecular grade glycerol and stored at -20°C.
While optimal Ig concentration for an application will vary, a good starting concentration for immunohistochemistry (IHC),
immunofluorescence(IF) and staining is 2-5 µg/ml.
For Western blots, the concentration is decreased by one order of magnitude (that is, 0.2-0.5 µg/ml).
All cell products contain the antimicrobial ProClin. See our FAQ section for additional information.
