Chlamydomonas is a biflagellate unicellular green alga that has proven especially amenable for the analysis of microtubule (MT)-based molecular motors, notably dyneins. These enzymes form the inner and outer arms of the flagellum and are also required for intraflagellar transport. Dyneins have masses of approximately 1-2 MDa and consist of up to 15 different polypeptides. Nucleotide binding/hydrolysis and MT motor activity are associated with the heavy chains, and we detail here our current… CONTINUE READING
