Języki publikacji



Lipotubuloids in ovary epidermis of Ornithogalum umbellatum which are a domain of cytoplasm containing a lot of lipid bodies, microtubules and actin filaments, ribosomes, endoplasmic reticulum as well as scarce mitochondria, microbodies, dictyosomes, autolytic vacuoles, exhibit progressive-rotary motion. The immunogold method demonstrated that microtubules and actin filaments of lipotubuloids might be connected with one another by myosin and kinesin. It was supposed that collaboration of motor proteins with actin filaments and microtubules makes autonomic high peripheral speed rotary motion of lipotubuloids in epidermis cells possible. Moreover, myosin was also detected in Golgi bodies in lipotubuloid. In lipotubuloids, the immunogold method demonstrated immunosignals after the use of an antibody to dynein light chains but spectroscopy mass analysis showed that in O. umbellatum epidermis lacked dynein heavy chains.
