Technical Data
Tubulin, alpha (Alpha Tubulin, Tubulin alpha Ubiquitous, H2-Alpha, K-alpha-1, TUBA3, Tubulin alpha 1 Chain, TUBA1, TUBA1A, Tubulin K alpha 1)
Microtubules are major cytoskeletal elements found in all eukaryotic cells. They are composed of a 110kD protein, tubulin, which is a dimer of two 55kD subunits. Two classes of subunits, a and b, are identified. Tubulin dimer is composed of a heterologous pair of these subunits. Microtubules play key roles in chromosome segregation in mitosis, intracellular transport, ciliary and flagellar bending, and structural support of the cytoskeleton.

Suitable for use in Immunohistochemistry, Western Blot and ELISA. Other applications have not been tested.

Recommended Dilutions:
Optimal dilutions to be determined by the researcher.

Storage and Stability:
May be stored at 4C for short-term only. Aliquot to avoid repeated freezing and thawing. Store at -20C. Aliquots are stable for 12 months after receipt. For maximum recovery of product, centrifuge the original vial after thawing and prior to removing the cap.
