Tubulin Beta antibody | TU-13
The evolutionarily conserved heterodimer tubulin, made up of a tubulin alpha and beta chain, binds two molecules of GTP, one at a non-exchangeable site on the alpha chain and one at an exchangeable site on the beta chain. Only the beta chain possesses GTPase activity however, hydrolysing GTP to GDP, and influencing the stability of the dimer within the microtubule.
Mouse anti Pig Tubulin beta antibody, clone TU-13 partially inhibits microtubule assembly in vitro (Draber, P. et al.). Mouse anti Pig Tubulin beta antibody, clone TU-13 has also been successfully employed for the demonstration of neuronal cells in mouse brain by immunohistochemistry on floating sections (Nováková et al. 1997).
