|Calculated MW||50152 Da|
|Other Names||Tubulin alpha-1B chain, Alpha-tubulin ubiquitous, Tubulin K-alpha-1, Tubulin alpha-ubiquitous chain, TUBA1B|
|Target/Specificity||A phospho synthetic peptide corresponding to residues surrounding tyrosine 272 of human alpha-tubulin was used as an immunogen. This antibody detects alpha-tubulin phosphorylated at tyrosine 272.|
|Format||50 mM Tris-Glycine (pH 7.4), 0.15 M NaCl, 40% Glycerol, 0.01% sodium azide and 0.05% BSA.|
|Storage||Maintain refrigerated at 2-8°C for up to 6 months. For long term storage store at -20°C in small aliquots to prevent freeze-thaw cycles.|
|Precautions||Alpha-Tubulin Antibody Phospho (pY272) 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.|
|Cellular Location||Cytoplasm, cytoskeleton.|

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. An essential component of microtubules, alpha-tubulin is also a multigene family in many species (1). Familial amyloidosis, British type, is an autosomal dominant disease characterized by progressive dementia, spastic paralysis and ataxia. The identity of the accumulating amyloid is not known, thus preventing the definitive classification of the disease. Findings suggest that the C-terminal fragments of both alpha- and beta-tubulin are closely associated to the amyloid deposits of familial amyloidosis, British type (2).
