The quadriflagellate alga polytomella agilis contains several alpha-tubulins with distinct isoelectric points (McKeithan, T.W., and J.L. Rosenbaum, 1981, J. Cell Biol., 91:352-360). While alpha-3 is the major component in flagella, alpha-1 predominates in cytoskeletal microtubules. For determination of whether the differences in alpha- tubulins are due to distinct genes or to posttranslational modification of a common alpha-tubulin precursor, poly A+ RNA was isolated from deflagellated and… CONTINUE READING
