Expansion microscopy on Drosophila spermatocyte centrioles.
It is concluded that expansion microscopy provides an effective alternative for thick tissues that are not amenable for traditional super-resolution techniques. Expand
Ultrastructural diversity between centrioles of eukaryotes.
This paper reviews the ultrastructural characteristics of centrioles in commonly studied organisms, highlighting the subtle and not-so-subtle differences between specific structural components of these centriole components. Expand
Gentamicin distribution in the basilar papilla possible association with regenerated hair cell orientation
The results suggest an association between the accumulation of gentamicin in the region of the basal body and the degree of disorientation of the cell surface and the ability of the centrosome to orient hair cells correctly. Expand


Mass isolation of calf thymus centrosomes: identification of a specific configuration
A comparative study with centrosomes isolated from human cultured lymphoblasts has led to the discovery of important differences in the structure of the two isolates and in their capacity to nucleate microtubules from purified tubulin. Expand

A contractile cytoskeletal network of Paramecium: the infra ciliary lattice
Immunofluorescence studies and observations by immuno electron microscopy provided new information on the infraciliary lattice of Paramecium and the possibility that the ICL may be a new example of a non-actin contractile system foundin lower eukaryotes is discussed. Expand

A mutation affecting basal body duplication and cell shape in Paramecium [published erratum appears in J Cell Biol 1987 Jun;104(6):1755]
The cytological and physiological data support the conclusion that the sm19+ gene codes for a diffusible product required for the initiation of basal body duplication and would thus be the first identified gene involved in this process. Expand
Structural and chemical characterization of isolated centrosomes.
Functional studies demonstrated that the isolated centrosomes were competent to nucleate microtubules in vitro from purified tubulin in conditions in which spontaneous assembly could not occur. Expand

Organization of intermediate filaments in ciliated cells from quail oviduct.
A well developed network of prekeratin intermediate filaments attached to the desmosomes creates a basket surrounding the nucleus in ciliated cells in situ and characterized by HRP immunocytochemistry. Expand
