*Optimal dilutions/concentrations should be determined by the researcher.
Not tested in other applications.
chicken fibroblast, chicken gizzard
The antibody is specific for α-tubulin in immunoblotting assays and may be used for localization of α-tubulin in cultured cells or tissue sections. The antibody reacts best with chicken fibroblasts.
0.01M PBS pH7.4, 1% BSA
15mM Sodium azide
Store as concentrated solution. Centrifuge briefly prior to opening vial. For short-term storage (1-2 weeks), store at 4ºC. For long-term storage, aliquot and store at -20ºC or below. Avoid multiple freeze-thaw cycles.

Tubulin is the major building block of microtubules. This intracellular cylindrical filamentous structure is present in almost all eukaryotic cells. Microtubules function as structural and mobile elements in mitosis, intracellular transport, flagellar movement and in the cytoskeleton. Tubulin is a heterodimer which consists of alpha-tubulin and beta-tubulin; both subunits have a molecular weight of approximately 50 kDa and share considerable homology. The most widely studied tubulins have been isolated from vertebrate brains. The microtubules can be viewed in immunofluorescent microscopy, which enables the observation of the intracellular organization of proteins that are in the form of a supramolecular structure.
