Full length native protein (purified) (S. cerevisiae).
We can conjugate this antibody to FITC for you (please see ab150252 for details). This antibody can be used as a Western blotting loading control (Kops et al.) and as a Microtubule Marker.
Has been used for the selection of specific recombinant antibodies engineered to incorporate its epitope. It is also useful for studying the function of microtubules.
Alternative versions available:
Anti-Tubulin antibody - Microtubule Marker (Alexa Fluor® 488) [YOL1/34] (ab195883)
Anti-Tubulin antibody - Microtubule Marker (Alexa Fluor® 647) [YOL1/34] (ab195884)
Anti-Tubulin antibody - Microtubule Marker (HRP) [YOL1/34] (ab196583)

Confocal image of 21 day in vitro rat hippocampal neurons, stained with rat monoclonal antibody to Tubulin - Microtubule Marker (ab6161) in green at 1/500 and Microtubule Associated protein 2 in blue.
This picture was kindly supplied as part of the review submitted by Dr Jonathon Burman.
Cultured human macrophages were used with ab6161 at 1/1000 for immunofluorescence. Cells were fixed with cold 2% formaldehyde for 20mins.
Green staining is Alexa 568, Blue staining is DAPI stain.
This cell represents a young macrophage, the staining patterns varied as the cells aged in culture.

ICC/IF image of ab6161 stained human HepG2 cells. The cells were 4% PFA fixed (10 min), permabilised in 0.1% PBS-Tween (20 min) and incubated with the antibody (ab6161, 1µg/ml) for 1h at room temperature. 1%BSA / 10% normal goat serum / 0.3M glycine was used to block non-specific protein-protein interactions. The secondary antibody (green) was Alexa Fluor® 488 goat anti-rat IgG (H+L) used at a 1/1000 dilution for 1h. Alexa Fluor® 594 WGA was used to label plasma membranes (red). DAPI was used to stain the cell nuclei (blue). This antibody also gave a positive IF result in HeLa, HEK 293 and MCF7 cells.
ab6161 staining mouse NIH 3T3 fibroblast cells by ICC/IF. Cells were PFA fixed and permeabilized in 0.2% Triton X-100 prior to blocking in 5% BSA for 45 minutes at RT. The primary antibody was diluted 1/1000 and incubated with the sample for 1 hour. An Alexa Fluor® 568 conjugated goat anti-rat antibody, diluted 1/3000, was used as the secondary.
