gamma-Tubulin, a recently discovered member of the tubulin superfamily, is a peri-centriolar component considered to be essential for microtubule nucleation. Mouse oocytes and early embryos lack centrioles until the blastocyst stage. Thus, early mouse embryos allowed us to study the location of gamma-tubulin in animal cells in the absence of centrioles. For this, we used an antiserum directed against a specific peptide of the gamma-tubulin sequence, which is conserved among species. This serum… CONTINUE READING
