Incorporation of tubulin from an evolutionarily diverse source, Physarum polycephalum, into the microtubules of a mammalian cell.

Abstract:

Physarum myxamoebal tubulin was injected into PtK2 cells to determine whether tubulin from this eukaryotic microbe could act as a reporter for microtubule growth and dynamics in a mammalian cell. The distribution of Physarum tubulin was determined by the use of a monoclonal antibody specific for Physarum tubulin and unable to detect mammalian tubulin. Physarum tubulin was incorporated into the microtubules of both interphase arrays and the mitotic spindle. Measurements of microtubule turnover...
