The function of Ana1 in centrosome assembly, and the regulation of centriole growth in Drosophila

Abstract:

Centrioles are microtubule-based structures that play a crucial role in the formation of centrosomes, cilia and flagella. Centriole defects are linked to several human diseases such as microcephaly, primordial dwarfism, cancer and ciliopathies. In Drosophila, Plk4, Sas-6, Ana2, Sas-4 and Asl form a conserved pathway that is essential for centriole assembly. Ana1 was identified as a potential centriole assembly protein in two genome-wide RNAi screens in Drosophila S2 cells, and ana1 mutant ...
