Identification of a mastigoneme protein from Phytophthora nicotianae

Blackman, Leila M; Arikawa, Mikihiko; Yamada, Shuhei; Suzaki, Toshinobu; Hardham, Adrienne R


Tripartite tubular hairs (mastigonemes) on the anterior flagellum of protists in the stramenopile taxon are responsible for reversing the thrust of flagellar beat and for cell motility. Immunoprecipitation experiments using antibodies directed towards mastigonemes on the flagella of zoospores of Phytophthora nicotianae have facilitated the cloning of a gene encoding a mastigoneme shaft protein in this Oomycete. Expression of the gene, designated PnMas2, is up-regulated during asexual...[Show more]
