In a forward genetic screen for chemotaxis mutants in Dictyostelium discoideum, we identified a loss-of-function mutation, designated tsunami, encoding a homolog of the Fused kinase. Cells lacking tsuA function could not effectively perform chemotaxis and were unable to become polarized or correctly orient pseudopods in chemotactic gradients. While tsuA(-)(More)
To investigate the role of subcellular localization in regulating the specificity of G protein betagamma signaling, we have applied the strategy of bimolecular fluorescence complementation (BiFC) to visualize betagamma dimers in vivo. We fused an amino-terminal yellow fluorescent protein fragment to beta and a carboxyl-terminal yellow fluorescent protein(More)
Orthotopic multicystic dysplastic kidney with crossed fused ectopia is a rare congenital anomaly. This congenital anomaly may give an appearance of a solitary kidney morphology during the initial imaging evaluation. A solitary kidney should be carefully evaluated for the presence of duplication, horseshoe configuration, or crossed renal ectopy.(More)
