Recognizes human, mouse (weak), rat (weak) and Drosophila (weak).
This antibody was originally validated as part of a Thermo Scientific Cellomics High Content Screening Kit. The antibody sold separately may have slightly different performance and may need to be further optimized for the best results.
Polo-like Kinase 1 (PLK1) is found to have several functions in mitotic progression. It also has been found to be elevated in a broad range of human tumors. The function of PLK1 appears to be a requirement for proper spindle assembly and other centrosome microtubule events.
