Using data automatically acquired by microinterferometry from large numbers of chick fibroblasts, we have detected rapid microfluctuations in the rates of protrusion and retraction of the cell margin which were strongly suppressed by colcemid, nocodazole and taxol. Fluctuations in the rate of retraction of the margin were about twice as powerful as(More)
We have used a fluorescent derivative of kinesin, AF-kinesin (kinesin conjugated with 5-(iodoacetamido)fluorescein), to investigate the binding site of kinesin on microtubules and to compare this site with that to which tau binds. Microtubules saturated with tau will bind AF-kinesin in the presence of the ATP analogue, 5'-[beta,gamma-imino]triphosphate(More)
Kinesin was isolated from bovine intradural nerve roots and conjugated with 5-(iodoacetamido)fluorescein. The modified kinesin (AF-kinesin) supports the movement of organelles along microtubules at rates comparable with those obtained using unmodified kinesin. AF-kinesin was purified by high-performance liquid chromatography. SDS/PAGE analysis of the(More)
