β-Tubulin belongs to the subfamily of tubulins, which is the major building block of microtubules. β-tubulin has a molecular weight of 55kDa. β−Tubulin structure is characterized with core of two β -sheets enclosed by a-helices. It also contains an N-terminal domain with the guanine nucleotide-binding region, an intermediate domain with taxol-binding site, and a C-terminal domain that contains the binding surface for molecular motor proteins. Human β-tubulin consists of seven isoforms (β I (class I), β II (class II), β III (class III), β IVa (class IVa), β IVb (class IVb), β V (class V), and β VI (class VI)).
Monoclonal Anti-β-Tubulin (mouse IgG1 isotype) is derived from the D66 hybridoma produced by the fusion of mouse myeloma cells and splenocytes from a BALB/c mouse immunized with a sea urchin (Lytechinus pictus) sperm axonemal proteins.
Recognizes all mouse brain β-tubulin isoforms (β and β′ subpopulations), and sea urchin β2-tubulin. The epitope recognized by the antibody is localized in the C-terminal region of β-tubulin (amino acids 427-432 in sea urchin β2-tubulin).
sea urchin (Lytechinus pictus) sperm axonemal proteins.
Can be used in studies involving the inhibition of flagellar motility in permeabilized sperm models.
Monoclonal Anti-β-Tubulin antibody produced in mouse has also been used in immunofluorescence assay and enzyme linked immunosorbent assay (ELISA).
Monoclonal Anti-β-tubulin antibody produced in mouse has been used in western blotting and immunocytochemistry.
Mutation in the gene leads to various neuronal migration disorders such as lissencephaly, pachygyria and polymicrogyria malformations. B2702 peptide binds to β- tubulin and inhibits natural killer (NK) cell cytotoxicity and it influences microtubule polymerization, which damages cytoskeleton organization and chaperone-like activity of tubulin. β-1 tubulin, also known as class VI or TUBB1, plays a vital role in platelet production, and is considered to be a potential biomarker candidate for immune thrombocytopenia (ITP).
