centriole +‎ -ar

Examples

  • Orthogonally oriented centriolar turbines could generate oscillations in spindle microtubules that resemble the motion produced by a laboratory vortexer.

    Wells vs tiny flies - The Panda's Thumb

  • The fact that the majority of Kid is bound to the chromosome suggests it is not powering centriolar rotation.

    Wells vs tiny flies - The Panda's Thumb

  • Cylinders do rotate, and rotating cylinders are found in biological systems, so a centriolar function based on rotation is perfectly reasonable.

    Wells vs tiny flies - The Panda's Thumb

  • Cross-section of a centriole observed in a mouse embryo cultured cell showing the typical nine triplets of centriolar tubules arran

  • A rise in intracellular calcium at the onset of anaphase could regulate the polar ejection force by shutting down the centriolar turbines, but defective regulation could result in an excessive force that contributes to the chromosomal instability characteristic of most cancer cells.

  • Varmark H, Llamazares S, Rebollo E, Lange B, Reina J, et al. (2007) Asterless is a centriolar protein required for centrosome function and embryo development in Drosophila.

  • Dammermann A, Muller-Reichert T, Pelletier L, Habermann B, Desai A, et al. (2004) Centriole assembly requires both centriolar and pericentriolar material proteins.

  • Kirkham M, Muller-Reichert T, Oegema K, Grill S, Hyman AA (2003) SAS-4 is a C. elegans centriolar protein that controls centrosome size.

    PLoS Biology: New Articles

  • Dammermann A, Maddox PS, Desai A, Oegema K (2008) SAS-4 is recruited to a dynamic structure in newly forming centrioles that is stabilized by the gamma-tubulin-mediated addition of centriolar microtubules.

  • Thus, although it is possible that GFP-tagging disrupts the centriolar localisation of one or more of these proteins, it seems likely that they influence centriole duplication indirectly.
