The de novo formation of basal bodies in Naegleria gruberi was preceded by the transient formation of a microtubule (MT)-nucleating complex containing gamma-tubulin, pericentrin, and myosin II complex (GPM complex). The MT-nucleating activity of GPM complexes was maximal just before the formation of visible basal bodies and then rapidly decreased. The… CONTINUE READING
