Prospective Cancer Drug
Dr. NAD's most recent work, at the front end of very early research following discovery. Is it worth pursuing? Comparisons with other chemotherapeutic agents.
Hi-Power Electron Microscopy
Cell ultrastructure at >10,000X !
Animal centrosome vs. plant blepharoplast in developing fern sperm
Cell wall (saccharide) synthesis.
LIFE WITHOUT CELLULOSE:
Cultured tobacco (BY-2) cells adapted to survive on herbicide.
MultiColor Light Microscopy
The sexy material of the site!
Cells lit up in multi-color fluorescence!
Animations of confocal images!
See all angles as cells spin 360°.

||A calmodulin-sensitive interaction between microtubules and a higher plant homolog of elongation factor-1-alpha|
||REPLY: A MAP by any other name would still bind to microtubules (refereed editorial response)|
||Beyond translation: elongation factor-1-alpha and the cytoskeleton (solicited review article)|
||In situ immunocytochemical evidence that a homolog of elongation factor EF-1-alpha is associated with microtubules in carrot cells|
||Elongation factor-1-alpha stabilizes microtubules in a calcium/calmodulin-dependent manner (2nd author)|
||Writing in the biology curriculum (manual for ~1200 undergrads; coauthor)|
