TUBA4A

TUBA4A

A gene on chromosome 2q35 that encodes an alpha tubulin, which combines with a beta tubulin to form microtubules, acting as a scaffold to determine cell shape and providing a matrix for cell organelle and vesicle movement via motor proteins.

The second DEP cluster was the tubulin complex, in which TUBA4A can be targeted by vincristine to blunt mitotic chromosomal separation (Figure 2(d)).
Because of missing data from the public Agilent data set, the Agilent evaluations were performed with a 47-gene classifier, rather than a 52-gene panel with exclusion of the following genes: CIB1, FOXH1, LIFE, NCAM1 (PCAM1), and TUBA4A (TUBA1).
