Confocal and video imaging of cytoskeleton dynamics in the leech zygote
(Academic Press Inc., 2004)
Ooplasmic segregation in the late interphase zygote of the leech Theromyzon trizonare is accomplished by reorganization of an ectoplasmic cytoskeleton formed by polar rings and meridional bands. The dynamic properties of ...
The complex dynamic network of microtubule and microfilament cytasters of the leech zygote
(Academic Press Inc., 2000)
The organization of the cytoskeleton in the early first interphase zygote and its involvement in organelle redistribution were studied in the glossiphoniid leech Theromyzon trizonare by confocal and electron microscopy, ...
Microtubule cytoskeleton distribution using fluorescent taxoid in Tetratrichomonas didelphidis
(Sociedad Chilena de Parasitología, 2003)
Marlin-1 and conventional kinesin link GABAB receptors to the cytoskeleton and regulate receptor transport
The cytoskeleton and cytoskeletal motors play a fundamental role in neurotransmitter receptor trafficking, but proteins that link GABAB receptors (GABABRs) to the cytoskeleton have not been described. We recently identified ...
Subpopulations of tau interact with microtubules and actin filaments in various cell types
It has been demonstrated that microtubule‐associated proteins (MAPs) interact with tubulin in vitro and in vivo. However, there is no clear evidence on the possible roles of the interactions of MAPs in vivo with other ...
A gathering of neuronal cytoskeletal scientists in South America
This essay attempts to capture the spirit of our recent meeting in Chile entitled "Emerging Concepts in Neuronal Cytoskeleton." The purpose of the meeting was to bring together scientists from South American countries with ...
Microtubule configuration and its relationship to sperm morphology in mammalian spermiogenesis
The acrosome is a secretory vesicle located in the mammalian sperm head. Its main function is to transport hydrolytic enzymes. These enzymes will dissolve the zona pellucid, assisting the sperm in fertilizing the egg. The ...
γ-Tubulin small complex formation is essential for early zebrafish embryogenesis
(Elsevier Ireland Ltd, 2018)
© 2018 The centrosomal protein γ-tubulin is part of the cytoplasmic γ-tubulin small (γ-TuSCs) and large complexes (γ-TuRCs). Both, molecular and cellular evidence indicate that γ-tubulin plays a central role in microtubule ...
Bacterial tubulins A and B exhibit polarized growth, mixed-polarity bundling, and destabilization by GTP hydrolysis
(American Society for Microbiology, 2017)
Bacteria of the genus Prosthecobacter express homologs of eukaryotic alpha- and beta-tubulin, called BtubA and BtubB (BtubA/B), that have been observed to assemble into filaments in the presence of GTP. BtubA/B polymers ...
