Collective dynein transport of the nucleus by pulling on astral microtubules during Saccharomyces cerevisiae mitosis.

Yeast 2021 Feb 6. Epub 2021 Feb 6.

Division of Biology, IISER Pune, Dr. Homi Bhabha Road, Pune, Maharashtra, 411008, India.

Positioning the nucleus at the bud neck during Saccharomyces cerevisiae mitosis involves pulling forces of cytoplasmic dynein localized in the daughter cell. Although genetic analysis has revealed a complex network positioning the nucleus, quantification of the forces acting on the nucleus and the number of dyneins driving the process has remained difficult. To better understand the collective forces involved in nuclear positioning, we compare a model of dyneins-driven microtubule (MT) pulling, MT pushing, and cytoplasmic drag to experiments. Read More

Cilium axoneme internalization and degradation in chytrid fungi.

Cytoskeleton (Hoboken) 2020 10 18;77(10):365-378. Epub 2020 Nov 18.

Department of Biology, Stanford University, Stanford, California, USA.

Loss of the cilium is important for cell cycle progression and certain developmental transitions. Chytrid fungi are a group of basal fungi that have retained centrioles and cilia, and they can disassemble their cilia via axoneme internalization as part of the transition from free-swimming spores to sessile sporangia. While this type of cilium disassembly has been observed in many single-celled eukaryotes, it has not been well characterized because it is not observed in common model organisms. Read More
