|Application ||WB, IHC-P, FC, E|
|Calculated MW||50327 Da|
|Other Names||Tubulin beta-1 chain, TUBB1|
|Target/Specificity||This TBB1 antibody is generated from rabbits immunized with human TBB1 recombinant protein.|
|Format||Purified polyclonal antibody supplied in PBS with 0.09% (W/V) sodium azide. This antibody is purified through a protein A column, followed by peptide affinity purification.|
|Storage||Maintain refrigerated at 2-8°C for up to 2 weeks. For long term storage store at -20°C in small aliquots to prevent freeze-thaw cycles.|
|Precautions||TBB1 Antibody is for research use only and not for use in diagnostic or therapeutic procedures.|
|Function||Tubulin is the major constituent of microtubules. It binds two moles of GTP, one at an exchangeable site on the beta chain and one at a non-exchangeable site on the alpha chain (By similarity).|
|Cellular Location||Cytoplasm, cytoskeleton|
|Tissue Location||Hematopoietic cell-specific. Major isotype in leukocytes, where it represents 50% of all beta-tubulins|

The tubulin family of globular proteins has several members, the most common of which are a-tubulin and ?tubulin; proteins which make up microtubules of the cytoskeltons of probably 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. 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. Delta (d) and epsilon (e) tubulin have been found to localize at centrioles and may play a role in forming the mitotic spindle during mitosis, though neither is as well-studied as the a- and ? forms.
