Ku70 forms a heterodimer comprising of p70/p86 which acts as regulatory subunit of the DNA-dependent protein kinase complex DNA-PK by increasing the affinity of the catalytic subunit PRKDC to DNA. Research indicates that the Ku p70/p86 dimer is probably involved in stabilizing broken DNA ends and bringing them together (Walker et al. 2001).
Human anti Human Ku70 antibody recognizes human Ku70 as a single band of ~70 kDa in multiple human cell line lysates by western blotting under reducing conditions.
