Microtubules are involved in a wide variety of cellular activities ranging from mitosis and transport events to cell movement and the maintenance of cell shape. Tubulin itself is a globular protein consisting of two polypeptides (A and B-tubulin). A and B-tubulin dimers are assembled to 13 protofilaments that form a microtubule of 22nm diameter. Tyrosine ligase adds a C-terminal tyrosine to monomeric a-tubulin. Assembled microtubules can again be detyrosinated by a cytoskeleton-associated carboxypeptidase. Detyrosinated A-tubulin is referred to as G-tubulin. Another post-translational modification of detyrosinated aAtubulin is C-terminal polyglutamylation, which is characteristic of microtubules in neuronal cells and the mitotic spindle. This makes an excellent loading control.Applications:Suitable for use in Immunofluorescence, ELISA, Western Blot and Immunohistochemistry.
