General description

β-Tubulin belongs to the subfamily of tubulin, which is the major building block of microtubules. β-Tubulin has a molecular weight of 55kDa. β-Tubulin structure is characterized with core of two β-sheets enclosed by α-helices. It also contains an N-terminal domain with the guanine nucleotide-binding region, an intermediate domain with taxol-binding site, and a C-terminal domain that contains the binding surface for molecular motor proteins. Human β-tubulin consists of seven isoforms (βI (class I), βII (class II), βIII (class III), βIVa (class IVa), βIVb (class IVb), βV (class V), and βVI (class VI)).
Monoclonal Anti-b-Tubulin (mouse IgG1 isotype) is derived from the hybridoma TUB 2.1 produced by the fusion of mouse myeloma cells and splenocytes from a mouse immunized with purified rat brain tubulin.

Specificity

The antibody recognizes all five isoforms of β-tubulin (β1-β5). It reacts with the β-Lc and β-Sc fragments in the carboxy-terminal part of β−tubulin in immunoblotting. The antibody may be used to localize β−tubulin in cultured cells or tissue sections.

Immunogen

tubulin from rat brain.

Application

Monoclonal Anti β-Tubulin antibody produced in mouse has been used in following studies:
  • Fluorescence-activated cell sorting (FACS)
  • Immunoblotting
  • Immunofluorescence Analysis

Biochem/physiol Actions

Mutation in the β-tubulin gene leads to various neuronal migration disorders such as lissencephaly, pachygyria and polymicrogyria malformations. B2702 peptide binds to β-tubulin and inhibits NK cell cytotoxicity and it influences microtubule polymerization, which damages cytoskeleton organization and chaperone-like activity of tubulin. β- 1 tubulin also known as Class VI or TUBB1, plays a vital role in platelet production, and is considered to be a potential biomarker candidate for immune thrombocytopenia (ITP).

Physical form

Supplied as ascites fluid with 15 mM sodium azide as a preservative.

Storage and Stability

For continuous use, store at 2-8 °C for up to one month. For extended storage, freeze at -20 °C in working aliquots. Repeated freezing and thawing, or storage in “frost-free” freezers, is not recommended. If slight turbidity occurs upon prolonged storage, clarify the solution by centrifugation before use. Working dilution samples should be discarded if not used within 12 hours.

Muscleblind-like-1 (MBNL1) is a splicing regulatory factor controlling the fetal-to-adult alternative splicing transitions during vertebrate muscle development. Its capture by nuclear CUG expansions is one major cause for type 1 myotonic dystrophy (DM1). Alternative splicing produces MBNL1 isoforms that differ...

Microtubules of the eukaryotic cytoskeleton are composed of a heterodimer of α- and β-tubulin. In addition to α-and β-tubulin, several other tubulins have been identified, bringing the number of distinct tubulin classes to seven.
