Ki-67/MKI67 was detected in immersion fixed A549 human lung carcinoma cell line using Sheep Anti-Human Ki-67/MKI67 Antigen Affinity-purified Polyclonal Antibody (Catalog # AF7617) at 5 µg/mL for 3 hours at room temperature. Cells were stained using the NorthernLights™ 557-conjugated Anti-Sheep IgG Secondary Antibody (red; Catalog # NL010) and counterstained with DAPI (blue). Specific staining was localized to nuclei and nucleoli. View our protocol for Fluorescent ICC Staining of Cells on Coverslips.
Ki-67/MKI67 in Human Breast Cancer Tissue.
Ki-67/MKI67 was detected in immersion fixed paraffin-embedded sections of human breast cancer tissue using Sheep Anti-Human Ki-67/MKI67 Antigen Affinity-purified Polyclonal Antibody (Catalog # AF7617) at 1 µg/mL overnight at 4 °C. Before incubation with the primary antibody, tissue was subjected to heat-induced epitope retrieval using Antigen Retrieval Reagent-Basic (Catalog # CTS013). Tissue was stained using the Anti-Sheep HRP-DAB Cell & Tissue Staining Kit (brown; Catalog # CTS019) and counterstained with hematoxylin (blue). Specific staining was localized to the nuclei of epithelial cells. View our protocol for Chromogenic IHC Staining of Paraffin-embedded Tissue Sections.

MKI67 (also Ki-67) is a 350-400 kDa nuclear protein that belongs to a molecular group comprised of mitotic chromosome-associated proteins. Ki-67 was originally recognized as an antigen associated with the monoclonal Ki-67 antibody raised against Hodgkin's lymphoma nuclear material. Ki-67 is contextually expressed, being potentially found in all cells that are not in the Go phase of the cell cycle. Thus, MKI67 qualifies as a cell proliferation marker. Functionally, Ki-67 is known to interact with 160 kDa Hklp2, a protein that promotes centrosome separation and spindle bipolarity. It also directly interacts with NIFK, and apparently binds to UBF, thus playing a role in rRNA synthesis. Human MKI67 is 3256 amino acids (aa) in length. It contains one FHA domain (aa 8-98), followed by at least 24 utilized Ser/Thr phosphorylation sites and sixteen 120 aa repeats (aa 1000-2928) that are interspersed with at least 90 additional utilized phosphorylation sites. There are two potential isoform variants. One isoform is 315-345 kDa in size and shows a deletion of aa 136-495, while a second isoform contains a 58 aa substitution for aa 1-513. Over aa 3120-3256, human Ki-67 shares 46% aa sequence identity with the mouse ortholog to Ki-67.
