Antigen Species

Human

Immunogen

synthetic peptide corresponding to the N-terminal region of human γ-tubulin (amino acids 38-53, with C-terminally added lysine) conjugated to KLH. This sequence is specific for γ-tubulin and not found in other members of the tubulin family such as α− β−, δ and ε− tubulins. This sequence is identical in mouse and rat γ-tubulin and highly conserved among species (Drosophila, Aspergillus, and yeast γ-tubulin).

Purification

Purified by affinity chromatography

Conjugation

Cyanine3 (Cy3)

Note

For laboratory use only. Not for any clinical, therapeutic, or diagnostic use in humans or animals. Not for animal or human consumption.

TARGET

Synonyms

tubulin gamma 1 , CDCBM4 , GCP-1 , TUBG , TUBGCP1

Background

The protein that binds microtubule minus ends and is responsible for mediating the link between microtubules and the centrosome is called gamma tubulin. Gamma Tubulin functions as the microtubule nucleator at the microtubule organizing centre (MTOC). By binding to the beta tubulin half of the tubulin molecule, it establishes the polarity of a microtubule, leaving the alpha tubulin half exposed at the positive end. Gamma Tubulin (approx. 48 kD) is a ubiquitous and highly conserved protein within the MTOCs in eukaryotic kingdom. It is related to alpha and beta tubulin and is, thus, a member of the tubulin superfamily of proteins. However, its abundance is less than 1% of the level of either alpha or beta tubulin. Moreover, unlike alpha and beta tubulin, it is not a component of microtubules. Rather, it is located at the MTOC. gamma Tubulin shares approximately 28-32% identity with alpha tubulin from various organisms and 32-36% identity with beta tubulins. The detection, localization and characterization of proteins involved in microtubule function is fundamental to the understanding of mitosis, meiosis and the microtubule cytoskeleton. Antibodies reacting specifically with gamma tubulin serve as an essential tool in the detection of the presence and role of this molecule in various cellular settings.
