General description

Tubulin (48 kDa) is a widely expressed and highly conserved protein within the microtubule organizing centers (MTOCs) or centrosome in eukaryotic cells. It is a member of the tubulin superfamily of proteins which includes α- and β- tubulin and the newly discovered centrosomal-associated proteins, δ- and ε- tubulin. γ-Tubulin is a part of large protein complex containing at least five other proteins and has a shape of a ring (γ-tubulin ring complex, γ-TuRC) that is roughly the same diameter as a microtubule. Its abundance is less than 1% of the level of either α- or β-tubulin. γ-Tubulin shares 28-32% identity with α-tubulin from various organisms, 32-36% identity with β-tubulins and 29-30% identity with δ- and ε tubulins. Some regions including those thought to be involved in GTP) binding are highly conserved among α-, β-, γ-, δ-, and ε-tubulins.

Immunogen

synthetic peptide corresponding to the C-terminus of human γ-tubulin (amino acids 433-451 with N-terminally added lysine), conjugated to KLH.

Application

Anti-γ-Tubulin (DQ-19) antibody produced in rabbit has been used in:
  • western blotting
  • immunocytochemistry
  • immunofluorescence

Biochem/physiol Actions

The proper organization of microtubules is essential for cell division and chromosome segregation, directed cell movement, interphase cytoplasmic organization, and other cytoskeletal functions. γ-Tubulin has an essential role in microtubule nucleation by the centrosomes. It binds to the β-tubulin half of the tubulin molecule, thus establishing the polarity of a microtubule, leaving the α-tubulin half exposed at the plus end. γ-TuRC (γ-tubulin ring complex) binds the microtubule minus ends and is responsible for mediating the link between microtubules and the centrosome.

Physical form

Solution in 0.01 M phosphate buffered saline, pH 7.4, containing 15 mM sodium azide.

Microtubules of the eukaryotic cytoskeleton are composed of a heterodimer of α- and β-tubulin. In addition to α-and β-tubulin, several other tubulins have been identified, bringing the number of distinct tubulin classes to seven.
