Monospecific antibody directed against bovine brain tubulin has been purified by affinity chromatography and tested against soluble tubulin and intact microtubules of brain and mitotic apparatus. Binding of the tubulin antibody to the mitotic spindle of rat kangaroo cells was demonstrated in all stages of mitosis by indirect immunofluorescence.
