Cytoskeleton-mediated templating of complex cellulose-scaffolded extracellular structure and its association with oikosins in the urochordate Oikopleura Sagane, Yoshimasa; Hosp, Julia; Zech, Karin; Thompson, Eric M. (Springer, 2010)Oriented cellulose deposition is critical to plant patterning and models suggest microtubules constrain cellulose synthase movements through the plasma membrane. Though widespread in plants, urochordates are the only animals ...Peer reviewedJournal article
Hosp, Julia; Sagane, Yoshimasa; Danks, Gemma; Thompson, Eric M. (Public Library of Science, 2012-07-05)Extracellular matrices regulate biological processes at the level of cells, tissues, and in some cases, entire multicellular organisms. The subphylum Urochordata exemplifies the latter case, where animals are partially or ...Peer reviewedJournal article
Moosmann, Alexandra; Campsteijn, Coen; Jansen, Pascal W. T. C.; Nasrallah, Carole; Raasholm, Martina; Stunnenberg, Henk G; Thompson, Eric M. (BioMed Central, 2011-07-15)Background: Histone variants alter the composition of nucleosomes and play crucial roles in transcription, chromosome segregation, DNA repair, and sperm compaction. Modification of metazoan histone variant lineages occurs ...Peer reviewedJournal article
