MA5-12933 targets Ku (p80) in FACS, ICC/IF, IP, and WB applications and shows reactivity with Human, Mouse and Non-human primate samples. This antibody does not cross-react with mouse in immunofluorescent applications, but does react with mouse in FACS applications.
The MA5-12933 immunogen is human B cell nuclei from plasmacytoid 2p68 cells.
The protein encoded by this gene is the 80-kilodalton subunit of the Ku heterodimer protein which is also known as ATP-dependant DNA helicase II or DNA repair protein XRCC5. Ku is the DNA-binding component of the DNA-dependent protein kinase, and it functions together with the DNA ligase IV-XRCC4 complex in the repair of DNA double-strand break by non-homologous end joining and the completion of V(D)J recombination events. This gene functionally complements Chinese hamster xrs-6, a mutant defective in DNA double-strand break repair and in ability to undergo V(D)J recombination. A rare microsatellite polymorphism in this gene is associated with cancer in patients of varying radiosensitivity.
