Target

  • 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.
  • Tissue specificity

    Ubiquitously expressed with highest levels in spleen, thymus and immature brain.
  • Involvement in disease

    Cortical dysplasia, complex, with other brain malformations 6
    Skin creases, congenital symmetric circumferential, 1
  • Sequence similarities

    Belongs to the tubulin family.
  • Domain

    The highly acidic C-terminal region may bind cations such as calcium.
  • Post-translational
    modifications

    Some glutamate residues at the C-terminus are polyglutamylated, resulting in polyglutamate chains on the gamma-carboxyl group (PubMed:26875866). Polyglutamylation plays a key role in microtubule severing by spastin (SPAST). SPAST preferentially recognizes and acts on microtubules decorated with short polyglutamate tails: severing activity by SPAST increases as the number of glutamates per tubulin rises from one to eight, but decreases beyond this glutamylation threshold (PubMed:26875866).
    Some glutamate residues at the C-terminus are 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). Both polyglutamylation and monoglycylation can coexist on the same protein on adjacent residues, and lowering glycylation levels increases polyglutamylation, and reciprocally. The precise function of monoglycylation is still unclear.
    Phosphorylated on Ser-172 by CDK1 during the cell cycle, from metaphase to telophase, but not in interphase. This phosphorylation inhibits tubulin incorporation into microtubules.

  • This blot was produced using a 4-12% Bis-Tris gel under the MOPS buffer system. The gel was run at 200V for 50 mins before being transferred onto a nitrocellulose membrane at 30V for 70 mins. The membrane was then blocked for an hour using 3% non-fat milk before being incubated with ab235761 overnight at 4°C. Antibody binding was visualized using ECL development solution ab133406.

    Samples: 1. HeLa (20µg) 2. NIH 3T3 (20µg) 3. PC12 (20µg) 4. HepG2 (20µg).
