Mutations at two loci, which cause an altered mobility of the flagella, affected the central pair microtubule complex of Chlamydomonas reinhardtii flagella. The mutations at both loci primarily affected the C1 microtubule of the complex. Three alleles at the PF16 locus affected the stability of the C1 microtubule in isolated axonemes. This phenotype has allowed us to determine that at least ten polypeptides of the central pair complex are unique to the C1 microtubule. The motility defect was… CONTINUE READING
