Purified tubulin or microtubules are widely used for in vitro assays related to their function, such as activities of their modifying enzymes and motor protein activity. This paper gave a review for purification tubulin and microtubules (MTs) using two different methods. One method of purification MTs depended on polymerization and depolymerization. MTs were polymerized at 37 °C with taxol in the presence. Another method is to purify tubulin by affinity column chromatography. Stu2p, a kind of MAPs, is able to bind with C-terminal of tubulin. Recombinant Stu2p was purified from expressing bacteria. Then Stu2p was coupled with NHS-activated resins, which were used to purify tubulin from mouse brain. Tubulins purified in this way can also be polymerized at 37 °C.
