Microtubular networks are extensively developed in many ciliate species. In several of them, we investigate the occurrence of the post-translational glutamylation of tubulin [Eddé et al., 1990: Science 247:82-85; Eddé et al., 1991: J. Cell. Biochem. 46:134-142] using as a probe for such modified tubulin, the monoclonal antibody GT335 [Wolff et al., 1992: Eur. J. Cell Biol. 59:425-432]. Results obtained in Paramecium strongly suggest that both axonemal and cytoplasmic tubulin are glutamylated… CONTINUE READING
