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

Gamma-Tubulin (48kDa) is a ubiquitous and highly conserved protein within the microtubule organizing centers (MTOCs) in eukaryotic cells. Gamma-Tubulin binds microtubule minus ends and is responsible for mediating the link between microtubules and the centrosome. It functions as the microtubule nucleator at the MTOC. It binds to the β-tubulin half of the tubulin molecule, thus establishing the polarity of a microtubule, leaving the α-tubulin half exposed at the plus end. gamma-Tubulin abundance is less than 1% of the level of either α- or β-tubulin.

Physical form

Solution in 0.01 M phosphate buffered saline, pH 7.4, containing 15 mM sodium azide


Anti-gamma-Tubulin recognizes an epitope located in the N-terminal region of gamma-tubulin (amino acids 38-53). Staining of gamma-tubulin (48 kDa) by immunoblotting is specifically inhibited with gamma-tubulin peptide (human, amino acids 38-53 with C-terminally added lysine).


Anti-γ-Tubulin polyclonal antibody is suitable for immunoblotting of materials such as A431 cultured cells whole extract (g-tubulin, 48 kDa), and immunocytochemical staining of cells such as cultured chicken fibroblast cells.

Antibodies to Tubulins, including Centrosome-Associated ε-Tubulin

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 dist...
