Today’s recommended paper is:
Cartwheel architecture of Trichonympha basal body
Paul Guichard et al. (2012)
Science 337 (6094), 533
Submitted by the Raff lab:
“We chose this paper because by finding an unusual organism, which had such a long centriole, they managed to answer a fundamental question in the centrosome field, for which we thought there would never be an answer for (namely whether the cartwheel of a centriole is a spiral or a stack of rings).”
