GeneCards Summary for TUBA4B Gene
TUBA4B (Tubulin Alpha 4b) is a Protein Coding gene. Among its related pathways are Development Slit-Robo signaling and EphB-EphrinB Signaling. Gene Ontology (GO) annotations related to this gene include GTP binding and structural constituent of cytoskeleton. An important paralog of this gene is TUBA1A.
Microtubules are cylindrical tubes of 20-25 nm in diameter. They are composed of protofilaments which are in turn composed of alpha- and beta-tubulin polymers. Each microtubule is polarized; at one end alpha-subunits are exposed (-) and at the other, beta-subunits are exposed (+).
