The antibody recognizes an epitope located on the α3 isoform of Chlamydomonas axonemal α-tubulin, within four residues of Lys-40 when this amino acid is acetylated. A sequence very similar to the one detected by the antibody in Chlamydomonas is found in the majority of α-tubulins, but the corresponding region is markedly divergent in some α-tubulin isoforms from chicken, Drosophila and yeast. The antibody has been used to detect acetylated α-tubulins in several organisms. Occasionally, the epitope recognized by the antibody may be absent or masked as it is in the kangaroo rat epithelial-like cell line PtK2.

Microtubules of the eukaryotic cytoskeleton perform essential and diverse functions and are composed of a heterodimer of alpha and beta tubulin. The genes encoding these microtubule constituents are part of the tubulin superfamily, which is composed of six distinct families. Genes from the alpha, beta and gamma tubulin families are found in all eukaryotes. The alpha and beta tubulins represent the major components of microtubules, while gamma tubulin plays a critical role in the nucleation of microtubule assembly. There are multiple alpha and beta tubulin genes and they are highly conserved among and between species. This gene encodes an alpha tubulin that is a highly conserved homolog of a rat testis-specific alpha tubulin. [provided by RefSeq, Jul 2008]
