RelevanceTubulin is the major building block of microtubules - an intracellular cylindrical filamentous structure that is present in almost all eukaryotic cells. Except in the simplest eukaryotes, tubulin (100 kDa) exists in all cells as a heterodimer of two similar but non-identical polypeptides alpha and beta. Alpha- and beta-tubulins are encoded by separate genes, or small gene families.
Alpha and beta tubulin dimers are assembled to 13 protofilaments that form a microtubule of 25 nm diameter. Within either family of alpha/beta tubulin heterodimers, individual subunits diverge from each other (both within and across species) at less than 10% of the amino acid positions, the most extreme diversity is localized to the carboxyl-terminal 15 residues. Both alpha and beta tubulins consist of various isotypes and both undergo different post-translational modifications.
Microtubules are involved in a wide variety of cellular activities ranging from mitosis and transport events to cell movement and the maintainance of cell shape.
