anti-gamma tubulin (Xenopus) antibody rabbit polyclonal


SKU: 69-001 Research Area: Applications:



Tubulin is the major constituent of microtubules. There are three members (α, β, γ) and two subtypes (δ, ε) in the tubulin family. Of these members, Gamma tubulin (451aa, 51KDa) is found at microtubule organizing centers (MTOC) such as the spindle poles or the centrosome, suggesting that it is involved in the minus-end nucleation of microtubule assembly during cell cycle.



Reactivity: Reacts with gamma-tubulin of Xenopus, human and rodents

Immunogen: Xenopus gamma-tublin C-terminal peptide, C-EYHAATRPDYISWGTQDK

conjugated with KLH

Purification: Affinity-purified with the immunogen peptide conjugated with agarose.

Form: 1mg/ml in PBS, 50% glycerol, filter-sterilized

Storage: Shipped at 4℃ and store at -20℃.



Western blotting (200~1,000 fold dilution)

Immunofluorescent staining (1/100~1/200 dilution)


Data Link  UniProtKB/Swiss-Prot P23330 (TBG1_XENLA)
