TUBB2A Tubulin is the major constituent of microtubules. It binds two moles of GTP, one at an exchangeable site on the beta chain and one at a non-exchangeable site on the alpha chain. Belongs to the tubulin family. High expression in brain, where it represents 30% of all beta-tubulins. Note: This description may include information from UniProtKB.
