Gallery: Kinectin 1 Antibody #8772
Kinectin 1 Antibody recognizes endogenous levels of total kinectin 1 protein.
Polyclonal antibodies are produced by immunizing animals with a synthetic peptide corresponding to residues near the amino terminus of human kinectin 1 protein. Antibodies are purified by protein A and peptide affinity chromatography.
Kinectin 1 (KTN1) is an endoplasmic reticulum (ER)-enriched integral membrane protein that may be involved in the formation of ER sheets (reviewed in 1). Kinectin 1 binds the microtubule motor protein kinesin and acts as a membrane anchor for kinesin-based organelle trafficking (2). The interaction of kinesin with kinectin 1 has been shown to affect ER-supported focal adhesion assembly (3). Kinectin 1 has also been implicated in translation elongation, as an anchor for the elongation factor complex to the ER (4,5). Research investigators have shown that kinectin 1 expression is altered in multiple human pathologies, including breast cancer (6), hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC) (7), Parkinson's disease (8), and the autoimmune syndrome Behçet's disease (BD) (9,10).
