Abcam recommends using milk as the blocking agent.
FunctionTubulin is the major constituent of microtubules. Gamma tubulin is found at microtubule organizing centers (MTOC) such as the spindle poles or the centrosome. Pericentriolar matrix component that regulates alpha/beta tubulin minus-end nucleation, centrosome duplication and spindle formation.
Sequence similaritiesBelongs to the tubulin family.
modificationsPhosphorylation at Ser-131 by BRSK1 regulates centrosome duplication, possibly by mediating relocation of gamma-tubulin and its associated proteins from the cytoplasm to the centrosome.
Cellular localizationCytoplasm > cytoskeleton > centrosome.

ICC/IF image of ab16504 stained human HeLa cells. The cells were methanol fixed (5 min) and incubated with the antibody (ab16504, 5µg/ml) for 1h at room temperature. The secondary antibody (green) was Alexa Fluor® 488 goat anti-rabbit IgG (H+L) used at a 1/1000 dilution for 1h. Image-iTTM FX Signal Enhancer was used as the primary blocking agent, 5% BSA (in TBS-T) was used for all other blocking steps. DAPI was used to stain the cell nuclei (blue). Alexa Fluor® 594 WGA was used to label plasma membranes (red).

SK-N-SH cells were fixed in 4% paraformaldehyde, permeabilized in 0.5% Triton X-100 and incubated for 1 hour with ab16504 (1/300). ab16504 staining is localized to the centrosome (red). The cells were counterstained with DAPI (blue). 100x magnification. The cells were blocked with 5% fetal bovine serum.
Paraformaldehyde-fixed mouse embryo tissue stained for gamma Tubulin (red) using ab16504 in immunohistochemical analysis.
SK-N-SH cells were fixed in 4% paraformaldehyde, permeabilized in 0.5% Triton X-100 and incubated for 1 hour with ab16504. The antibody clearly labels the centrosome (red). The cells were counterstained with DAPI (blue). The cells were blocked in 5% BSA.
ICC/IF image of ab16504 stained Hek293 cells. The cells were 100% methanol fixed (5 min) and then incubated in 1%BSA / 10% normal goat serum / 0.3M glycine in 0.1% PBS-Tween for 1h to permeabilise the cells and block non-specific protein-protein interactions. The cells were then incubated with the antibody (ab16504, 1µg/ml) overnight at +4°C. The secondary antibody (green) was Alexa Fluor® 488 goat anti-rabbit IgG (H+L) used at a 1/1000 dilution for 1h. Alexa Fluor® 594 WGA was used to label plasma membranes (red) at a 1/200 dilution for 1h. DAPI was used to stain the cell nuclei (blue) at a concentration of 1.43µM.
The cause of the background staining is uncertain, although a cytokeratin exisits of a similar molecular weight and amino acid sequence to that of the immunogen used to raise the antibody.
