Assembly of the paraflagellar rod and the flagellum attachment zone complex during the Trypanosoma brucei cell cycle.
Trypanosomes possess a single flagellum that is attached to their cell body via the flagellum attachment zone (FAZ). The FAZ is composed of two structures: a cytoplasmic filament complex and four microtubules situated next to it. There is a complex transmembrane crosslinking of this FAZ to the paraflagellar rod (PFR) and axoneme within the flagellum. We have partially purified the FAZ complex and have produced monoclonal antibodies both against the FAZ and the paraflagellar rod. The two antib...Expand abstract
