More than 20 years ago, biochemical analysis of the eukaryotic cell cytoskeleton revealed the major component proteins. The heterodimeric (α/β) protein tubulin was defined as the building block of microtubules, assembled in a polar manner into specifically arranged protofilaments in the microtubule wall [1]. The next two members of the tubulin protein(More)
A genomic clone from Trypanosoma brucei, which contains a full length gamma-tubulin gene, was isolated using degenerate oligonucleotide primers. The sequence of this clone predicts a protein of 447 amino acids having a high degree of homology with gamma-tubulins from human and Xenopus laevis (67.2% amino acid identity) and only 57.7% identity with the(More)
Parents who are unable to provide for their families in a typical manner such as developing their own routines, providing consistent meals and material possessions, and having a place of their own often experience a sense of failure with the loss of these parenting roles Deprivation in the aforementioned areas may compromise the development of the parent,(More)
