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)
Suitable for use in Western Blot, Immunocytochemistry and Immunofluorescence. Other applications not tested.

Recommended Dilution:
Immunoblot Analysis: 0.1-1ug/ml of this lot detected a-Tubulin in RIPA lysates from A431, L6 cells and rat whole brain tissue. A431 cell lysate was resolved by electrophoresis, transferred to nitrocellulose and probed with anti-a-Tubulin (0.1ug/ml). Proteins were visualized using a goat anti-mouse secondary antibody conjugated to HRP and a chemiluminescence detection system. Arrow indicates a-Tubulin (~50kD).
Optimal dilutions to be determined by the researcher.

Included Positive Antigen Control:
Non-stimulated A431 lysate. Add 2.5ul of 2-mercaptoethanol/100ul of lysate and boil for 5 minutes to reduce the preparation. Load 20ug of reduced lysate per lane for minigels.

Storage and Stability:
May be stored at 4C for short-term only. For long-term storage, store at -20C. Aliquots are stable for at least 12 months at -20C. For maximum recovery of product, centrifuge the original vial after thawing and prior to removing the cap. Further dilutions can be made in assay buffer.
