High impact information on tbb-2

  • Our identification of two recessive, complementing alleles of a beta-tubulin that disrupt nuclear-centrosome centration and rotation in the early embryo originally suggested that this tubulin, tbb-2, has specialized functions [1].
  • Expression of the beta 2-tubulin gene is developmentally regulated and the message is found predominantly in adult male worms, whereas the beta 1-tubulin gene is expressed in microfilariae and approximately equal levels of the transcript are found in male and female adult worms [2].
  • Southern hybridization analyses show that the beta 2-tubulin sequence exists as a single copy gene within the B. pahangi genome [2].
