Immunogen Peptide (C) 441-448 coupled to maleimide-activated keyhole limpet hemocyanin via cysteine added to the N-terminus of the neuron-specific peptide.
Clone TU-20
Isotype IgG1
Specificity The antibody TU-20 recognizes C-terminal peptide sequence ESESQGPK (aa 441-448) of neuron-specific human betaIII-tubulin.
Purification Purified by ammonium sulphate and caprylic acid precipitation
Purity > 95 % (by SDS-PAGE)
Alternative Name betaIII-tubulin (TUBB3 Antibody Abstract)
Background The betaIII-tubulin isoform is present dominantly in cells of neuronal origin and it is one of the earliest markers of neuronal differentiation. It is regarded as a specific probe for the cells of neuronal origin as well as for the tumours originating from these cells. The betaIII-tubulin is most abundant in cells of neuronal origin, but was also detected in Sertoli cells of the testis and transiently in non-neuronal embryonic tissues.
Pathways Microtubule Dynamics

Application note: Reducing conditions.
Immunohistochemistry (paraffin sections) Recommended dilution: 10 µg/mL
Staining technique: Standard ABC technique (DAB+)

Working concentrations should be determined by the investigator.
Restrictions For Research Use only
Concentration 1 mg/mL
Buffer Phosphate buffered saline (PBS) with 15 mM sodium azide, approx. pH 7.4
Preservative Sodium azide
Precaution of Use WARNING: Reagents contain sodium azide. Sodium azide is very toxic if ingested or inhaled. Avoid contact with skin, eyes, or clothing. Wear eye or face protection when handling. If skin or eye contact occurs, wash with copious amounts of water. If ingested or inhaled, contact a physician immediately. Sodium azide yields toxic hydrazoic acid under acidic conditions. Dilute azide-containing compounds in running water before discarding to avoid accumulation of potentially explosive deposits in lead or copper plumbing.
Handling Advice Do not freeze.
Storage 4 °C
Storage Comment Store at 2-8 °C. Do not use after expiration date stamped on vial label.
