synthetic peptide corresponding to the N-terminal region of human γ-tubulin (amino acids 38-53, with C-terminally added lysine) conjugated to KLH. This sequence is specific for γ-tubulin and not found in other members of the tubulin family such as α− β−, δ and ε− tubulins. This sequence is identical in mouse and rat γ-tubulin and highly conserved among species (Drosophila, Aspergillus, and yeast γ-tubulin).

General description

Tubulin, γ 1 is a protein encoded by the TUBG1 gene in humans. This gene encodes a member of the tubulin superfamily. γ-tubulin interacts with Arp2/3, a complex that nucleates actin filaments and with the Arp2/3 activator WASH. It is found to have relationship with actin filament dynamics.

Physical form

Solution in 0.01 M phosphate buffered saline, pH 7.4, containing 1% bovine serum albumin and 15 mM sodium azide


Anti-γ-Tubulin-Cy3 antibody produced in rabbit is suitable for direct immunofluorescence at a dilution of 1:200 using methanol/acetone-fixed chicken fibroblats cells or HeLa cells (human).

Biochem/physiol Actions

γ-Tubulins in the γ-TuRC might promote microtubule nucleation by providing a template that enhances the intrinsically weak lateral interaction between αβ-tubulin heterodimers when associated laterally. It has a unique functional property of a monomeric tubulin. γ-tubulin is also found to be expressed in lung cancer. Cep70 as an important centrosomal protein that interacts with γ-tubulin and plays a critical role in the regulation of mitotic spindle assembly.
