Background Information

The tubby-like protein 3 (TULP3) has been identified as a member of tubby and tubby-like proteins (TULPs) that plays an important role in maintenance and function of neuronal cells during development and post-differentiation. Tulp3 gene is essential for embryonic development in mice. Recently TULP3 has been reported to bind to the IFT (intraflagellar transport)-A complex and promote trafficking of G protein-coupled receptors into primary cilia, which is implicated in regulating neuronal function.

One of the worst antibodies I have ever used. I do not believe this antibody accurately detects Tulp3 by western blotting at all. The amount of non-specific bands at all sizes is so bad this antibody is pretty much only good for a protein stain. I have wasted weeks trying to get this antibody to work to no avail. Avoid this product for western blotting at all costs.

We previously described that TULP3 (a PIP2-binding protein) accumulates in INPP5E-KO cilia, which also accumulate PIP2 (Garcia-Gonzalo et al. 2015 Dev Cell 34:400-409). We have successfully confirmed those results using Proteintech's anti-TULP3 antibody (13637-1-AP) in both mouse embryonic fibroblasts (MEFs, see my previous review) and in hTERT-RPE1 cells (here). This TULP3 antibody works beautifully, especially in human cells (it also works well in MEFs, but ciliary signal is less intense and lower dilution is needed). As far as I know, this is the best commercial anti-TULP3 available.
