alpha Tubulin Antibody (DM1A) - BSA Free Summary

Description
As the TUBA1A gene is conserved evolutionarily and is ubiquitously expressed in most eukaryotic cell lines, the Alpha tubulin antibody has been shown to be an attractive and effective choice for a loading control, detecting at approximately 50-55 kDa. Quantitative western blotting requires a loading control in order to account and adjust for the differences in the loading of samples across wells.

This alpha Tubulin Antibody (DM1A) was developed against native chicken brain microtubules.

Application Notes
This alpha Tubulin Antibody (DM1A) is useful as a loading control for Western blot as well as Immunoprecipitation, Immunohistochemistry on paraffin-embedded and frozen sections, Immunocytochemistry/Immunofluorescence and Flow Cytometry.
The DM1A alpha tubulin antibody is ideal for use as a Western blot loading control, where a band can be seen around 50-55 kDa and as a cytoskeletal marker in ICC. For IHC-Paraffin, antigen retrieval is not essential, but may optimize staining.

Background

Tubulin is the major building block of microtubules. Microtubules function as structural and mobile elements in mitosis, intracellular transport, flagellar movement and in the cytoskeleton. The tubulin superfamily is composed of six distinct families. Genes from the alpha, beta and gamma tubulin families are found in all eukaryotes. Microtubules of the eukaryotic cytoskeleton perform essential and diverse functions and are composed of a heterodimer of alpha and beta tubulins. Alpha and beta tubulin dimers are assembled to 13 protofilaments that form a microtubule of 22 nm diameter with a theoretical molecular weight of 50 kDa.

Tyrosine ligase adds a C-terminal tyrosine to monomeric alpha tubulin. Assembled microtubules can again be detyrosinated by a cytoskeleton associated carboxypeptidase. Detyrosinated alpha tubulin is referred to as Glu-tubulin. Another post-translational modification of detyrosinated alpha tubulin is C-terminal polyglutamylation which is characteristic for microtubules in neuronal cells and the mitotic spindle.

Like GAPDH and beta-actin, alpha/beta tubulin is often used as a loading control in immunoblot applications (1). Alpha/beta tubulin is also good for counterstaining microtubules in immunofluorescence (2).

FAQs for alpha Tubulin Antibody (NB100-690). (Showing 1 - 3 of 3 FAQs).

  1. I am interested in buying an actin or tubulin antibody for Western blot loading control. We would like to use it on rat heart samples. Please recommend us one of your actin and/or tubulin products, and add it to the NOX2 quotation.
    • NB100-690 is for Alpha Tubulin and has been validated for use in WB and Rat. This will be added to the quote along with our Actin Antibody.
  2. I am working on a dissection fixation protocol for a non model organism, and I am using DM1A alpha tubulin as a control.  I do not see any sort of Astral projections; does this convince you that it is a working stain ?
    • The staining looks a little off to my eye. What were your fixation conditions? Tubulin immunostaining can be finicky and requires particular fixation conditions for optimal labeling. Depending on your other antigenic sites, it's ideal to use either mixed aldehydes (PFA and Glutaraldehyde) with simultaneous extraction or methanol. PFA alone gives an undesirable hazy staining pattern.Some laboratories also recommend adding a calcium chelator into the fixation buffer as calcium induces depolymerization of microtubules. Lastly, be sure to run negative controls with your staining.
  3. We would like to stain cilia with an acetylated alpha tubulin antibody in our cells, but I am unsure if this antibody will be able to conclusively differentiate cilia from other structures such as spindle pole bodies. Does anyone know what acetylated alpha tubulin antibodies might bind to apart from cilia?
    • Acetylated alpha tubulin is found in relatively stable microtubules. It is best practice to use this marker together with a centrosome/centriole marker, which will stain the basal bodies at the base of the cilium. After that, it is relatively straightforward to identify the acetylated alpha tubulin signal that corresponds to the cilium.
