O95C1_PURE_beta-Tubulin_Antibody_WB_012618_updated
Whole cell extracts (15 µg total protein) prepared from HeLa (Lane 1), Jurkat (Lane 2), NTERA-2 (lane 3), and NIH/3T3 (Lane 4) cells were resolved by 4-20% Tris-Glycine gel electrophoresis, transferred to nitrocellulose, and probed with 0.1 µg/mL (1:5000 dilution) purified anti-β-Tubulin antibody (Clone O95C1). Proteins were visualized by chemiluminescence detection using HRP goat anti-mouse-IgG (Cat. No. 405301). Equal protein loading was confirmed using Direct-Blot™ HRP anti-β-actin antibody (Cat. No. 643807) at a 1:5000 dilution (lower). Lane M: MW ladder.

Description

Eukaryotic microtubules are tubular polymers of tubulin that are a major component of the cytoskeleton. They play an essential role in diverse cellular functions, including migration, mitosis, and trafficking, and are also critical for normal development. β- and α-tubulins comprise the two core protein families that heterodimerize and assemble into each microtubule filament. There are multiple β- and α-tubulins isotypes, with each showing unique tumoral and tissue-specific distribution. TUBB4A is a β–tubulin primarily expressed in nervous tissue and moderate expression in testis. Mutations in TUBB4A cause hypermyelinating leukodystrophy-6 and autosomal dominant torsion dystonia -4.

Application

WB - Quality tested

Recommended Usage

Each lot of this antibody is quality control tested by Western blotting. For Western blotting, the suggested use of this reagent is 0.1 - 1.0 µg per ml (1:500-1:5000 dilution). It is recommended that the reagent be titrated for optimal performance for each application.

Application Notes

Because of complete sequence homology, this clone is also predicted to recognize TUBB4A in higher eukaryotes, including rat, monkey, pig, bovine, and canine. This clone was generated using full-length recombinant TUBB4A as an immunogen. However, due to high sequence homology, this clone may also recognize other members of the β-Tubulin family, notably TUBB2A, TUBB3, TUBB4B, and TUBB8. Because these β-Tubulins have a similar molecular weight as TUBB4A, we do not recommend using this antibody as a TUBB4A-specific antibody. This clone was generated using a more defined immunogen (recombinant TUBB4A) than our existing β-Tubulin clone, TU27/Tubulin (Cat. No. 903401), which was generated against taxol-assembled microtubules (mixed tubulins).
