Western blot analysis of Beta-Tubulin was performed by loading 50ug of various cell lysates per well onto a 4-20% Tris-HCl polyacrylamide gel. Proteins were transferred to a PVDF membrane and blocked with 5% BSA/TBST for at least 1 hour. The membrane was probed with a biotinylated Beta-Tubulin monoclonal antibody (Product # MA5-16308-BTIN) at a dilution of 1:1000 for 1 hour at room temperature, followed by Streptavidin-HRP (Product # 21126) at a dilution of 1:20,000 for 30 minutes at room temperature. Chemiluminescent detection was performed using SuperSignal West Pico (Product # 34078).

Microtubules, the major cytoskeletal elements found in all eukaryotic cells, consist of Tubulin, which is a dimer of two 55kDa subunits: alpha and Beta. Microtubules play key roles in chromosome segregation in mitosis, intracellular transport, ciliary and flagellar bending, and structural support of the cytoskeleton. Because beta-tubulin is ubiquitously expressed in all eukaryotic cells, it is frequently used as a loading control for assays involving protein detection, such as Western blotting.
