Tubulin alpha-1A chain (TUBA1A), also known as alpha-tubulin 3, tubulin B-alpha-1, B-ALPHA-1, tubulin alpha-3 chain, TUBA3, and LIS3, is a member of the tubulin family. Tubulin is the primary constituent of microtubules. Tubulin binds two moles of GTP, one at an exchangeable site on the beta chain and one at a non-exchangeable site on the alpha-chain. The TUBA1A gene is one of three alpha tubulin genes located on chromosome 12q. TUBA1A is found on the cytoskeleton and is expressed predominantly in morphologically differentiated neurologic cells. Mutations to the TUBA1A gene cause a neurological condition called lissencephaly type 3 (LIS3). As a result of defective neuronal migration, LIS3 is characterized by microcephaly, mental retardation, and early-onset epilepsy (PMID: 22264709). The tubulin clone (YL1/2) specifically binds tyrosylated Tubulin (Tyr-Tubulin) (PMID: 6415068).

FAQs for Tubulin (3)

  1. I am interested in buying a Tubulin antibody to use in Western blot as a loading control. We would like to use it on rat heart samples. Can you make a recommendation?
    • I would recommend the Tubulin Antibody (YL1/2) catalog # NB600-506. This antibody works great as a loading control in Western blot and has been validated for use with rat samples.
  2. In the immunohistochemistry paraffin section protocol....the PBS buffer....should it be at certain pH?
    • For IHC application, different labs cites the pH of PBS buffer in the range of 7.1 - 7.6 but most commonly used pH is pH 7.4 (this is what we use in our lab). You may use this PBS (pH 7.4) for making permeablization buffer, antibody diluent buffers and for making wash buffer. For more on the protocol that we use in our lab and for IHC-P troubleshooting suggestions, you may visit: IHC-P Protocol and IHC-P Troubleshooting.
  3. I was wondering what does Format 7C mean as far as anitbodies go?
    • 7C is a fluorophore - it is useful for FLOW. The details of the fluor are (A=425, E=500)
