The emergent flagellum of euglenoids and trypanosomatids contained in addition to microtubules a prominent filamentous structure--the flagellar rod (paraflagellar/paraxonemal rod). Immunoblots and immunofluorescence localization using three antibodies generated against gel-isolated proteins confirmed previous studies that the Euglena flagellar rod consisted of polypeptides migrating at 66-, 69-, and 75-kD. Immunoblotting after two dimensional gel electrophoresis identified ten or more isoforms… CONTINUE READING
