Detection of Human and Mouse beta -I Tubulin by Western Blot. Western blot shows lysates of human platelets and mouse platelets. PVDF membrane was probed with 0.2 µg/mL of Mouse Anti-Human beta -I Tubulin Monoclonal Antibody (Catalog # MAB8527) followed by HRP-conjugated Anti-Mouse IgG Secondary Antibody (Catalog # HAF018). A specific band was detected for beta -I Tubulin at approximately 50 kDa (as indicated). This experiment was conducted under reducing conditions and using Immunoblot Buffer Group 1.
beta -I Tubulin in BG01V Human Embryonic Stem Cells. beta -I Tubulin was detected in immersion fixed BG01V human embryonic stem cells differentiated into cardiomyocytes using Mouse Anti-Human beta -I Tubulin Monoclonal Antibody (Catalog # MAB8527) at 10 µg/mL for 3 hours at room temperature. Cells were stained using the NorthernLights™ 557-conjugated Anti-Goat IgG Secondary Antibody (red; Catalog # NL001) and counterstained with DAPI (blue). Specific staining was localized to cytoplasm and cytoskeleton. View our protocol for Fluorescent ICC Staining of Cells on Coverslips.

Background: beta-I Tubulin
beta -tubulin is a 50 kDa cytoskeletal protein which is the a major component of neuronal processes: axons, dendrites, and dendritic spines. beta -tubulin is represented by different isoforms including beta -I, beta -II, beta -III, and beta -IV. Elimination of beta -I isoform will decrease the viability of neuroblastoma cells. Formation of actin tubules may be directly inhibited by beta -I isoform which results in decreasing cellular adhesion. beta -I Tubulin levels in different brain regions of schizophrenia patients undergo noticeable changes suggesting that this isoform may have a specific role in the pathophysiology of this illness by affecting actin tubule formation which is required for cell division and differentiation.
