Microtubules of the eukaryotic cytoskeleton performessential and diverse functions and are composed of a heterodimerof alpha and beta tubulins. The genes encoding these microtubuleconstituents belong to the tubulin superfamily, which is composedof six distinct families. Genes from the alpha, beta and gammatubulin families are found in all eukaryotes. The alpha and betatubulins represent the major components of microtubules, whilegamma tubulin plays a critical role in the nucleation ofmicrotubule assembly. There are multiple alpha and beta tubulingenes, which are highly conserved among species. This gene encodesalpha tubulin and is highly similar to mouse and rat Tuba1 gene.Northern blotting studies have shown that the gene expression ispredominantly found in morphologically differentiated neurologiccells. This gene is one of three alpha-tubulin genes in a clusteron chromosome 12q.
