Encor Mouse Monoclonal to beta tubulin 

Tubulins are a major class of cytoskeletal proteins and divided into five distinct classes, namely α, β, γ, δ and ε tubulins. The most abundant members of the tubulin family are the α and β-tubulins and are the major components of cytoplasmic microtubules. The various subunits have molecular weights of approximately 55 kDa and are 50% identical to one another at the protein sequence level. Microtubules are assembled from stable dimer of one α and one β subunit, and polymerization from dimers to assembled microtubules requires GTP. Microtubules are involved in a number of essential cellular functions including the maintenance of cell shape, transport, motility, cell signaling and mitosis (1). β tubulin is regarded as a “house keeping” protein which is generally not altered much in expression as a result of experimental manipulations. As a result antibodies to β tubulin are widely used as loading controls in western blotting as a standard by which the levels of other proteins may be measured. The important role of microtubules in cell division makes them a desirable target for the development of chemotherapeutic agents directed against rapidly dividing cancer cells (2). MCA-4E4 was raised against tubulin purified from pig brain and reacted with recombinant β-tubulin (Abcam), but not recombinant α-tubulin (Abnova) by ELISA and dot blots.
