Ki-67 (antigen KI-67) has a gene size of 29,545 bp and it consists of 15 exons and 14 introns. It has a minus strand orientation. This gene is located on human chromosome 10q26.2.
This gene encodes a nuclear protein that is associated with and may be necessary for cellular proliferation. Alternatively spliced transcript variants have been described. A related pseudogene exists on chromosome X. (provided by RefSeq)
MKI67 (NP_002408, 3157 a.a. ~ 3256 a.a) partial recombinant protein with GST tag. MW of the GST tag alone is 26 KDa.
Monoclonal Anti-MKI67 antibody has been used in immunohistochemistry (IHC).
Ki-67 (antigen KI-67) protein acts as a cellular marker for proliferation. This protein plays a major role in the maintenance and regulation of the cell division cycle. Ki-67, a part of the mitotic chromosome periphery, function as a biological surfactant to maintain individual mitotic chromosomes dispersed in the cytoplasm after nuclear envelope disassembly.
