These cells were scratch-wounded followed by fixation 12-hours post-wounding. Tubulin (Green) and alpha-mannosidase II (Red) were labeled to note cell polarization and Golgi orientation. Cells expressing paxillin lacking LD4 are unable to reorient the Golgi towards the wound edge. From the lab of Christopher Turner, PhD.
Research in the Department of Cell and Developmental Biology explores the molecular and biochemical mechanisms of cellular function and development. Research in the Department of Cell and Developmental Biology is in several exciting areas:
Other projects include: studies of embryonic blood vessel development and of signaling cascades that control cellular proliferation and differentiation.
