Localization of the sea urchin Spec3 protein to cilia and Golgi complexes of embryonic ectoderm cells.

Expression of the Spec3 gene of Strongylocentrotus purpuratus is associated with ectodermal ciliogenesis. An antiserum was raised against the amino terminus of the deduced Spec3 amino acid sequence and used for immunofluorescent staining. Cilia and an apical structure at the base of the stained cilium of each ectodermal cell stained intensely in gastrula… CONTINUE READING
