Abstract

In the biflagellated alga Chlamydomonas, adhesion and fusion of the plasma membranes of gametes during fertilization occurs via an actin-filled, microvillus-like cell protrusion. Formation of this approximately 3-microm-long fusion organelle, the Chlamydomonas fertilization tubule, is i...read more
