Role of tubulin glutamylation in flagellum construction (TUBGLUFLA)
Cilia and flagella are essential eukaryotic organelles composed of an evolutionary conserved structure of 9 doublet microtubules that are similar but not equivalent. We propose that a tubulin post-translational modification called glutamylation could act […]
Mode of action of intraflagellar transport
Cilia and flagella are found at the surface of most cells of the human body. Their malfunctioning results in ciliopathies, genetic diseases that affect 1 individual out of 400. Their construction relies on intraflagellar […]
