Chlamyomonas as a model for cilia-related disease

Department of Biology Seminar Series
Karl Lechtreck, University of Georgia
- | Onlline

The Lechtreck lab (https://research.franklin.uga.edu/Lechtreck-Lab/) explores how cells construct, maintain and utilize cilia, including studies on microtubule-based intraflagellar transport, length control and mechano-sensation.  Much of their work exploits the unicellular alga Chlamydomonas reinhardtii, as a genetically accessible model system for investigating all manner of ciliary biology.

  • Craft van de Weghe J et al 2020.  Diffusion rather than intraflagellar transport likely provides most of the tubulin required for axonemal assembly in Chlamydomonas.  J Cell Sci 133:jcs249805  doi:10.1242/jcs.249805.
  • Dai J et al 2018.  In vivo analysis of outer arm dynein transport reveals cargo-specific intraflagellar transport properties.  Molec Biol Cell 29:2553-65  doi: 10.1091/mbc.E18-05-0291.
  • Craft JM et al 2015.  Tubulin transport by IFT is upregulated during ciliary growth by a cilium-autonomous mechanism.  J Cell Biol 208:223-37  doi:10.1083/jcb.201409036.
