Anti-Tubulin, beta III Antibody
Tubulin, beta III
Tubulin is the major constituent of microtubules, existing as a heterodimer of the α and β subunits. The beta III isoform of tubulin is found almost exclusively in neuronal processes of adult tissues and is therefore an excellent marker for neurons. Neuron specific, posttranslational modifications within the C-terminal domain of beta III tubulin have been shown to be developmentally regulated suggesting that they may serve to modulate the interaction of tubulin with microtubule associated proteins (Lee et al., 1990). Additionally, beta III tubulin has been found to be highly expressed in cancer cells such as small cell lung cancer, large cell neuroendocrine carcinoma and adenocarcinomas and is correlated with an increasing histological degree of malignancy (Katsetos et al., 2003)
Protein G Purified
Synthetic peptide corresponding to amino acid residues specific to rat beta III tubulin, conjugated to keyhole limpet hemocyanin (KLH).
Storage at -20°C is recommended, as aliquots may be taken without freeze/thawing due to presence of 50% glycerol. Stable for at least 1 year at -20°C.
Protein G purified culture supernatant.
10 mM HEPES (pH 7.5), 150 mM NaCl, 100 µg per ml BSA and 50% glycerol.
