Squid giant axon contains neurofilament protein mRNA but does not synthesize neurofilament proteins
When isolated squid giant axons are incubated in radioactive amino acids, abundant newly synthesized proteins are found in the axoplasm. These proteins are translated in the adaxonal Schwann cells and subsequently transferred ...
Envelope structure of Synechococcus sp. WH8113, a nonflagellated swimming cyanobacterium
(BioMed Central, 2001-04-24)
Many bacteria swim by rotating helical flagellar filaments. Waterbury et al. discovered an exception, strains of the cyanobacterium Synechococcus that swim without flagella or visible changes in shape. Other species of ...
Axonal maintenance, glia, exosomes, and heat shock proteins
(F1000 Research, 2016-02-22)
Of all cellular specializations, the axon is especially distinctive because it is a narrow cylinder of specialized cytoplasm called axoplasm with a length that may be orders of magnitude greater than the diameter of the ...
