Alignment of Microtubule Imagery [article]

Feiyang Yu, Ard Oerlemans, Erwin M. Bakker
2011 arXiv   pre-print
This work discusses preliminary work aimed at simulating and visualizing the growth process of a tiny structure inside the cell---the microtubule.  ...  Here in this paper, our approach is to take pictures of microtubules at different time slots and then appropriately combine these images into a coherent video.  ...  How to align those images properly directly determines the usefulness of our video. One important feature of microtubule structure is their polarity.  ...

Mirror-imaged doublets of Tetmemena pustulata: Implications for the development of left–right asymmetry

Aaron J. Bell, Peter Satir, Gary W. Grimes
2008 Developmental Biology  
True mirror imagery of the membranelles would require new enantiomorphic forms of the individual ciliary components, particularly the basal bodies, which is never observed.  ...  The overall symmetry of the OA thus appears to be separable from the more localized assembly of individual basal bodies.  ...  Finally, we thank the imaging facility at AECOM for assistance with some of the image preparation.  ...
