Gene Information


Kelch domain-containing protein 8B recombinant protein epitope signature tag (PrEST)



All Prestige Antibodies Powered by Atlas Antibodies are developed and validated by the Human Protein Atlas (HPA) project ( as a result, are supported by the most extensive characterization in the industry.

The Human Protein Atlas project can be subdivided into three efforts: Human Tissue Atlas, Cancer Atlas, and Human Cell Atlas. The antibodies that have been generated in support of the Tissue and Cancer Atlas projects have been tested by immunohistochemistry against hundreds of normal and disease tissues and through the recent efforts of the Human Cell Atlas project, many have been characterized by immunofluorescence to map the human proteome not only at the tissue level but now at the subcellular level. These images and the collection of this vast data set can be viewed on the Human Protein Atlas (HPA) site by clicking on the Image Gallery link.

Biochem/physiol Actions

The gene KLHDC8B (kelch domain containing 8B) encodes a protein that prevents chromosomal instability, centrosomal amplification and mitotic errors. Decrease in the expression of this protein leads to an increase in binucleated cells, suggesting its role in cytokinesis. This depletion produces binucleated, giant Reed-Sternberg (RS) cell, associated with Hodgkin lymphoma.

Features and Benefits

Prestige Antibodies® are highly characterized and extensively validated antibodies with the added benefit of all available characterization data for each target being accessible via the Human Protein Atlas portal linked just below the product name at the top of this page. The uniqueness and low cross-reactivity of the Prestige Antibodies® to other proteins are due to a thorough selection of antigen regions, affinity purification, and stringent selection. Prestige antigen controls are available for every corresponding Prestige Antibody and can be found in the linkage section.

Every Prestige Antibody is tested in the following ways:
  • IHC tissue array of 44 normal human tissues and 20 of the most common cancer type tissues.
  • Protein array of 364 human recombinant protein fragments.


Corresponding Antigen APREST71367.

Physical form

Solution in phosphate-buffered saline, pH 7.2, containing 40% glycerol and 0.02% sodium azide

A key feature of Hodgkin lymphoma is that the malignant cells are binucleated, as a consequence of failed cytokinesis. We recently ascertained a family in which multiple cases of Hodgkin lymphoma had occurred among individuals who inherited a balanced chromosomal...

The malignant cell in classical Hodgkin lymphoma (HL) is the binucleated giant Reed-Sternberg cell. Chromosomal instability and mitotic errors may contribute to HL pathogenesis; one potential mitotic regulator is the kelch protein KLHDC8B, which localizes to the midbody, is expressed...

Classical Hodgkin lymphoma (cHL) is a malignancy of B-cell origin in which the neoplastic cells, known as "Reed-Sternberg" (RS) cells, are characteristically binucleated. Here we describe a family where multiple individuals developing cHL have inherited a reciprocal translocation between chromosomes...
