... hydrodynamic flow, motile cilia are organized and oriented into a polarized array. Basal bodies (BBs) nucleate and position motile cilia at the cell cortex. Cytoplasmic BB-associated microtubules are conserved structures that extend from BBs. By using the ciliate, Tetrahymena thermophila , combined with EM...

.... These unique features of Tetrahymena prompted us to investigate the role of Tetrahymena Mob1. Unexpectedly, we found that Mob1 accumulated in basal bodies at the posterior pole of the cell, and is the first molecular polarity marker so far described in Tetrahymena . In addition, Mob1 depletion caused...

... attachment zone (FAZ), and regulates cell morphogenesis using an unknown mechanism. Here we identified a new FAZ component, CC2D, which contains coiled-coil motifs followed by a C-terminal C2 domain. T. brucei CC2D is present on the FAZ filament, FAZ-juxtaposed ER membrane and the basal bodies. Depletion...

... in the process of cell division. These aberrations include delay in basal body and kinetoplast separation, cleavage furrow progression and flagellar pocket division. In addition to these changes, the intracellular trafficking and actin dynamics are also adversely affected. All these abnormalities are, however...

... subfamilies and nine of the centrin subfamilies are ICL specific and play a role in its molecular and supramolecular architecture. The tenth and most conserved centrin subfamily is present at three cortical locations (ICL, basal bodies and contractile vacuole pores) and might play a role in coordinating...

... a critical stage of ciliogenesis requiring the temporal establishment of an apical web-like structure of actin for basal body docking and subsequent axoneme growth. Apical web formation and basal body docking were prevented by interruption of actin remodeling and were dependent on RhoA activation. Additional...

... the other, and located at an angle of approximately 45° clockwise of the flagellar plane. This location correlates with the position of one of four acetylated microtubule bundles connected to the flagellar apparatus. Each basal body is attached to two of these microtubule rootlets. The rootlet...

The results reported here show that the capping structures are neither associated with the basal body nor with the ciliary membrane during the initial stages of attachment between these organelles. Shortly after attachment of the basal body to the membrane...

... or withdrawal of cilia and flagella showed that their basal bodies (= centrioles) were retained in the cells where they may, or may not, subsequently disassemble. We show that in the fungus Neocallimastix sp. the basal bodies are discarded with the flagella when zoospores encyst. This shedding of basal bodies...

...Arno Tiedtke ABSTRACT A new procedure for mass isolation of pure pellicles containing intact basal bodies of Tetrahymena pyriformis is reported. The success of the procedure depends on the elimination of the sticky mucocyst contents before fractionation of the cells, which is induced by Alcian Blue...
