General description

Tubulin is a 100kD protein that is present in all cells as a heterodimer of two similar polypeptides α and β which assemble to form microtubules. Proper organization of microtubules is essential for several cellular functions like mitosis, meiosis, some forms of organellar movement, intracellular transport, flagellar movement and cytoskeletal functions. Monoclonal anti-tubulin, polyglutamylated antibody can be used as primary antibody in colocalization experiments. This antibody can also be used for studies involving the inhibition of flagellar motility in permeabilized sperm models. Mouse anti-tubulin, polyglutamylated antibody reacts specifically with the epitope present in the C-terminal region of α and β tubulins (glutamylated motif at amino acids 445-457 of α-tubulin).

Tubulin is a cellular colchicine-binding protein.

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...
