  • Function
    Tubulin is the major constituent of microtubules. It binds two moles of GTP, one at an exchangeable site on the beta chain and one at a non-exchangeable site on the alpha-chain.
  • Involvement in disease
    Defects in TUBB1 are a cause of macrothrombocytopenia autosomal dominant TUBB1-related (MAD-TUBB1) [MIM:613112]. It is a congenital blood disorder characterized by increased platelet size and decreased number of circulating platelets.
  • Sequence similarities
    Belongs to the tubulin family.
  • Post-translational
    Some glutamate residues at the C-terminus are polyglutamylated. This modification occurs exclusively on glutamate residues and results in polyglutamate chains on the gamma-carboxyl group. Also monoglycylated but not polyglycylated due to the absence of functional TTLL10 in human. Monoglycylation is mainly limited to tubulin incorporated into axonemes (cilia and flagella) whereas glutamylation is prevalent in neuronal cells, centrioles, axonemes, and the mitotic spindle. Both modifications can coexist on the same protein on adjacent residues, and lowering glycylation levels increases polyglutamylation, and reciprocally. The precise function of such modifications is still unclear but they regulate the assembly and dynamics of axonemal microtubules.

Customer reviews and Q&As

Thank you for sending the details.

It is clear that tag is a problem which is interfering with the antibody. It may be that due to stearic hindrance epitope is not fully exposed because of conformational changes in the target protein.
