Tubulins comprise an important family of globular proteins, which commonly form microtubules for cytoskeltal structure. The most common Tubulin isoforms are alpha, beta and gamma tubulin. Alpha Tubulin is a fairly ubiquitous microtubule component, whereas beta Tubulin is specific to neuronal microtubules. Gamma Tubulin is primarily found in centrosomes and spindle pole bodies, where it is critical for proper nucleation and polar orientation of microtubules. The final tubulin family members, delta and episilon Tubulin, are less well studied but thought to be associated with mitotic spindle formation. Tubulin antibodies are very useful as controls for protein standarization and in both cytoskeletan and cell cycle studies.
