Jasplakinolide, a novel actin targeting peptide, inhibits cell growth and induces actin filament polymerization in the green alga Micrasterias.
Jasplakinolide, a naturally occurring cyclodepsipeptide from the marine sponge Jaspis sp., known to induce actin polymerization and stabilization in vitro, markedly influences the morphogeneticExpand

The weal and woe of costimulation in the adoptive therapy of cancer with chimeric antigen receptor (CAR)-redirected T cells.
Adoptive cell therapy has shown impressive efficacy to combat cancer in early phase clinical trials, in particular when T cells engineered to specifically target tumor cells were applied. TheExpand

Design and construction of a new temperature‐controlled chamber for light and confocal microscopy under monitored conditions: biological application for plant samples
A new light microscope–temperature‐controlled chamber (LM–TCC) has been constructed. The special feature of the light microscope–temperature‐controlled chamber is the Peltier‐element temperatureExpand

Ultrastructural localization of polysaccharides and N-acetyl-d-galactosamine in the secretory pathway of green algae (Desmidiaceae)
In order to characterize the secretory pathway leading to multipolar tip growth in green algae of the family Desmidiaceae, different general polysaccharide stainings, such as the periodic acid-silverExpand

Chondramides, novel cyclodepsipeptides from myxobacteria, influence cell development and induce actin filament polymerization in the green alga Micrasterias.
The effects of chondramides A-D, new actin targeting cyclodepsipeptides from the myxobacterium Chondromyces crocatus, are probed on the unicellular green alga Micrasterias denticulata, a modelExpand

Impairment of cytoskeleton‐dependent vesicle and organelle translocation in green algae: combined use of a microfocused infrared laser as microbeam and optical tweezers
A Nd‐YAG laser at 1064 nm is used as optical tweezers to move intracellular objects and a laser microbeam to cause impairment of cytoskeleton tracks and influence intracellular motions inExpand
