Kinesin Heavy Chain antibody | H2
Kinesins are microtubule associated motor proteins, responsible for converting nucleoside triphosphate released energy into mechanical energy. Kinesin-1 exists as a homodimer of 120-130 kDa chains, known as heavy chains. Associated with this dimer when purified from brain homogenates are light chains of 60-70 kDa. The light chains are involved in binding of kinesin to organelles and appear to have regulatory functions. They are not essential for motility generation.
