Demonstration of different patterns of microtubule organization in Physarum polycephalum myxamoebae and plasmodia using immunofluorescence microscopy.

Abstract:

We have used anti-tubulin antibodies and immunofluorescence microscopy to determine the overall distribution of microtubules during interphase and mitosis in both the myxamoebae and plasmodia of the slime mold Physarum polycephalum. We have paralleled these observations with electron microscopy of the same stages. The myxamoebae possess a network of cytoplasmic microtubules whilst the coenocytic plasmodium does not possess any cytoplasmic microtubules--at either interphase or mitosis. In plas...
