Ki67 antibody | AbD02531
Ki-67 antigen is expressed in proliferating cells but not in quiescent cells. Expression of this antigen occurs preferentially during late G1, S, G2, and M phases of the cell cycle, while in cells in G0 phase the antigen cannot be detected. Consequently, Ki-67 antigen expression is used in tumor pathology to detect proliferating cells in neoplastic diseases. In cultured cells, Ki-67 is expressed in the nucleolus of interphase cells.
The Ki-67 gene contains 15 exons. The Ki-67 repeat region, within which there is a 22-amino acid Ki-67 motif, is encoded by exon 13. The shorter isoform lacks exon 7. Northern blot analysis revealed multiple transcripts ranging from approximately 8.9 to 12.5 kb in proliferating but not quiescent cells. Immunoblot analysis showed expression of 320- and 359-kDa proteins. Sequence analysis predicted that the short-lived 2,896- and 3,256-amino acid protein isoforms contain potential nuclear targeting signals, over 200 potential phosphorylation sites, 19 N-myristoylation sites, 3 amidation sites, and numerous PEST sites. Antisense oligonucleotides inhibited cellular proliferation in a dose-dependent manner, suggesting that Ki-67 protein expression may be an absolute requirement for cell proliferation. Clone AbD02531 is also known as clone 2531.

- Product Form
- Bivalent human recombinant Fab selected from the HuCAL® GOLD phage display library. Expressed in E. coli and purified using NiNTA affinity chromatography. This Fab fragment is dimerized via a helix-turn-helix motif. The antibody is tagged with a myc-tag (EQKLISEEDL) and a his-tag (HHHHHH) at the C-terminus of the antibody heavy chain -- Liquid.

- Peptide derived from the human Ki-67 protein. Sequence GFKELFQTPG, coupled via a C-terminal cysteine to carrier proteins.
- Activity was tested by indirect ELISA: The Ki-67 antigen peptide was coupled to human transferrin carrier protein. The coupled antigen (5 μg/ml) plus unrelated control proteins were immobilized on a microtiter plate. Specific binding was monitored by first adding HCA006 (2 μg/ml), then adding a secondary antibody (goat anti-human F(ab')2 fragment specific, AP conjugate. 1:5000 diluted). A fluorescent signal was created by adding the AP sub-strate Attophos. The signal on the antigen is at least 5-fold above background, whereas the signal on the control antigens is less than 1.5-fold above background.
