Detection of Human Ku80/XRCC5 by Western Blot.
Western blot shows lysates of 293T human embryonic kidney cell line, A549 human lung carcinoma cell line, and Jurkat human acute T cell leukemia cell line. PVDF membrane was probed with 1 µg/mL of Human Ku80/XRCC5 Antigen Affinity-purified Polyclonal Antibody (Catalog # AF5619) followed by HRP-conjugated Anti-Goat IgG Secondary Antibody (Catalog # HAF017). A specific band was detected for Ku80/XRCC5 at approximately 86 kDa (as indicated). This experiment was conducted under reducing conditions and using Immunoblot Buffer Group 1.
Ku80/XRCC5 in Human Breast Cancer Tissue.
Ku80/XRCC5 was detected in immersion fixed paraffin-embedded sections of human breast cancer tissue using Goat Anti-Human Ku80/XRCC5 Antigen Affinity-purified Polyclonal Antibody (Catalog # AF5619) at 1 µg/mL for 1 hour at room temperature followed by incubation with the Anti-Goat IgG VisUCyte™ HRP Polymer Antibody (Catalog # VC004). Tissue was stained using DAB (brown) and counterstained with hematoxylin (blue). Specific staining was localized to nuclei.

Ku80 (Lupus Ku autoantigen protein p86; also ATP-dependent DNA helicase 2 subunit 2 and Ku86) is a ubiquitous 80 - 85 kDa nuclear protein that serves as a component of DNA-dependent protein kinase. In particular, it heterodimerizes with Ku70 to form a complex that binds DNA ends and select sequences, and which recruits DNA-PKcs for the purpose of phosphorylating multiple chromatin-bound proteins, including p53, Oct-1 and Sp-1. The Ku:DNA-PKcs complex participates in DNA repair, DNA replication, and VDJ recombination. Human Ku80 is 732 amino acids (aa) in length. It contains a Ku domain (aa 244 - 543) with a DNA binding motif (aa 257 - 268), and a C-terminal DNA-PKcs-binding sequence (aa 720 - 728). Over aa 402 - 565, Ku80 shares 77% aa identity with mouse Ku80.
