Background The microtubules are intracellular dynamic polymers made up of evolutionarily conservedpolymorphic alpha/beta-tubulin heterodimers and a large number of microtubule-associatedproteins (MAPs). The microtubules consist of 13 protofilaments and have an outer diameter25 nm. Microtubules have their intrinsic polarity, highly dynamic plus ends and less dynamicminus ends. Microtubules are required for vital processes in eukaryotic cells includingmitosis, meiosis, maintenance of cell shape and intracellular transport. Microtubules are alsonecessary for movement of cells by means of flagella and cilia. In mammalian tissue culturecells microtubules have their minus ends anchored in microtubule organizing centers(MTOCs).The GTP (guanosintriphosphate) molecule is an essential for tubulin heterodimerto associate with other heterodimers to form microtubule. In vivo, microtubule dynamics varyconsiderably. Microtubule polymerization is reversible and a populations of microtubules incells are on their minus ends either growing or shortening this phenomenon is calleddynamic instability of microtubules. On a practical level, microtubules can easily bestabilized by the addition of non-hydrolysable analogues of GTP (eg. GMPPCP) or morecommonly by anti-cancer drugs such as Taxol. Taxol stabilizes microtubules at roomtemperature for many hours. Using limited proteolysis by enzymes both tubulin subunits canbe divided into N-terminal and C-terminal structural domains.The alpha-tubulin (relative molecular weight around 50 kDa) is globular protein that existsin cells as part of soluble alpha/beta-tubulin dimer or it is polymerized into microtubules. Indifferent species it is coded by multiple tubulin genes that form tubulin classes (in human 6genes). Expressed tubulin genes are named tubulin isotypes. Some of the tubulin isotypesare expressed ubiquitously, while some have more restricted tissue expression.Alpha-tubulin is also subject of numerous post-translational modifications. Tubulin isotypesand their posttranslational modifications are responsible for multiple tubulin charge variants -tubulin isoforms. Heterogeneity of alpha-tubulin is concentrated in C-terminal structuraldomain.
