Event Type:  Seminar (This is an NIH Science event)
Title:  Combination of cryo-EM and genetics for studying eukaryotic cilia
Description:  Eukaryotic cilia are complex cell organelles and play important roles in various cell, such as propeller and antenna. They consist of hundreds of different proteins that are precisely organized by self-assembly mechanisms. To study such a complex system, we combine genetics and structural biology. We have been identifying 3D locations of specific proteins by combining Chlamydomonas genetics and cryo-electron tomography (cryo-ET)[1-3]. We have recently started using zebrafish and mice as model organisms for studying cilia, to which we can apply genome editing techniques. These new approaches enable us to identify and characterize new ciliary proteins.
