Cell motility and cytokinesis phenotypes

  • a Schematic illustration of RNAi knockdown strains used in this study (pf16, pf20, pf16/tpn, rsp3, and pfr2), as well as the tpn knockdown (26) and wild-type strains. Flagella are shown in blue. A circular red arrow denotes cellular rotation, and a straight red arrow denotes directional motility.

  • b The phenotypes of each strain, as described in the text, are listed. All mutants that are incapable of cellular rotation are also defective in cytokinesis.
