LMB 365 – Day 313

The image for day 313 of #LMB365 shows apical localisation of thehmRNA (magenta) in the fruit fly embryo. This mRNA is trafficked by the microtubule motor dynein and Simon Bullock’s group in Cell Biology has used this system to shed light on how dynein recognises cargoes and how its motility is regulated. Blue and green signals are from DNA and nuclear envelopes, respectively.
