Microtubules are the key components of the cytoskeleton of eukaryotic cells and have an important role in various cellular functions such as intracellular migration and transport, cell shape maintenance, polarity, cell signaling, and mitosis.5 The real biologic basis by which tubulin inhibition would result in termination of a sustained monomorphic arrhythmia; cannot be fully explained.
Duocarmycins are able to exert their mode of action at any phase in the cellular cycle, whereas tubulin binders will only attack tumor cells when they are in a mitotic phase.
This distinction was not possible because of the limitations of gamma tubulin staining.

Single cell suspensions were then stained with appropriate antibodies as follows: mouse antinestin (1: 50, Abcam), rat anti-CXCR4 (1: 50, BioLegend), and rabbit anti-[beta]III tubulin (1: 10, Epitomics).
A complete transcriptome analysis on biopsies of DMD patients has also revealed an upregulation of several X-ROS-related transcripts, including NOX2 and nine different tubulin isoforms [28].
The article was found to contain images with the following concerns: There are irregularities in the background in Figures 1(a) and 1(b); the tubulin controls in Figures 1(a) and 1(b) are the same; Figure 3(b), Cyclin B (72 hrs) is the same as Figure 6(b), TGF betal (24 hrs); Figure 5(c), the lanes in the TGF-alpha rows at 6 hours and 72 hours do not align.
Our group has reported, for the first time, the presence of HDAC6 in sperm and demonstrated its tubulin specific deacetylase activity and its role in sperm motility in Holtzman rat [9].
