We have used Drosophila testis-specific beta2-tubulin to determine sequence requirements for different microtubules. The beta2-tubulin C-terminal tail has unique sperm-specific functions [Dev Biol 158:267-286 (2003)] and is also important for forming stable heterodimers with alpha-tubulin, a general function common to all microtubules [Mol Biol Cell 12(7):2185-2194 (2001)]. beta-tubulins utilized in motile 9 + 2 axonemes contain a C-terminal sequence "axoneme motif" [Science 275 (1997) 70-73… CONTINUE READING
