The major building block of microtubules is tubulin, an intracellular cylindrical filamentous structure that is present in almost all eukaryotic cells. Except in the simplest eukaryotes, tubulin (100 kDa) exists in all cells as a heterodimer of two similar but non-identical polypeptides (55 kDa each), designated alpha and beta, that assemble into microtubules. Within either family of alpha/beta tubulin heterodimers, individual subunits diverge from each other (both within and across species) at less than 10% of the amino acid positions. The most extreme diversity is localized to the carboxyl-terminal 15 residues. Both alpha and beta tubulins consist of various isotypes. In addition, both undergo post-translational modifications, including acetylation, phosphorylation detyrosination, polyglutamylation, and polyglycylation. Polyglutamylation of tubulin consists of the addition of a lateral chain of glutamyl units on the C-terminal region of tubulin polypeptides. This modification was shown to regulate the interaction between tau, one of the major neuronal microtubule associated proteins, and tubulin. Furthermore, it was shown that injection of monoclonal antibodies specific to the polyglutamylated form of tubulin into HeLa cells caused the disappearance of centrioles, an organelle known to have the most stable microtubules. The detection, localization, and characterization of proteins involved in microtubule function is fundamental to the understanding of mitosis, meiosis, organellar and flagellar movement, intracellular transport, and cytoskeletal functions. Antibodies reacting specifically with the modified forms of alpha and beta tubulin isotypes serve as essential tools in the detection and study of the functional significance of these molecules.

FAQs for Tubulin Antibody (NB600-567). (Showing 1 - 2 of 2 FAQ).

  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. The data sheet for Tubulin [ac Lys40] antibody (6-11B-1) (catalog number for Novus Biologicals: NB600-567) indicates that this antibody works in ELISA and I would like to request either the protocol or the literature reference for it at your earliest convenience. Do you also have the information on the capture antibody that you used and the input quantity available?
    • Here is a link to our ELISA protocol. NB600-567 was tested and validated for use in an indirect ELISA, and as such was used as the detection antibody. For the testing of this antibody, the ELISA plate wells were coated with the immunogen, acetylated a-tubulin from the outer arm of sea urchin sperm axonemes, and no capture antibody was used. Unfortunately I don't have any information regarding the input quantity, but please let me know if you have additional questions.
