Changes in the abundance and distribution of conserved centrosomal, cytoskeletal and ciliary proteins during spermiogenesis in Marsilea vestita.
College Park, United States. In Cell Motil Cytoskeleton, 2003
We show here that additional centrosomal and cytoskeletal antigens known as SF assemblin, p95 kDa protein, delta tubulin, gamma tubulin, Xgrip109, Aik, CTR453, RanBPM, BX63, RSP6, and alpha tubulin each exhibit specific localization patterns both on immunoblots of gametophyte protein isolates and in fixed cells.
Sperm axoneme: a tale of tubulin posttranslation diversity.
New York City, United States. In Mol Reprod Dev, 2002
The members of the tubulin superfamilies found in spermatids include the alpha beta-tubulin dimer, in addition to gamma-tubulin in the centrosome, and delta-tubulin in the perinuclear ring region of the mouse spermatid manchette, the centrosome region, and flagellum.
Motile organelles: the importance of specific tubulin isoforms.
Saint Louis, United States. In Curr Biol, 2001
The carboxyl terminus of a specific beta tubulin isoform plays an important role in forming the '9 + 2' structure of the axoneme; delta tubulin plays an essential role in forming the triplet microtubules of centrioles and basal bodies.
Cell division: The renaissance of the centriole.
New Haven, United States. In Curr Biol, 1999
Recent studies suggest that centrioles are required for the organization of a functional centrosome and that centriole assembly requires both gamma- and delta-tubulin.
