    A Blocker
    Cell Biology Programme, European Molecular Biology Laboratory, Heidelberg, Germany
    J Cell Biol 137:113-29. 1997
    ..This is the first study using a single in vitro system that describes the roles played by kinesin, kinectin, cytoplasmic dynein, and dynactin in the microtubule-mediated movement of a purified membrane organelle...
  2. ncbi A role for microtubule dynamics in phagosome movement
    A Blocker
    Cell Biology Programme, European Molecular Biology Laboratory, Heidelberg, Germany
    J Cell Sci 111:303-12. 1998
    ..We suggest that phagosomes can bind to the plus-ends of dynamic microtubules and move by following their shrinkage or growth...

    A Blocker
    Unité de Pathogénie Microbienne Moléculaire INSERM U389, Institut Pasteur, 75724 Paris Cedex 15, France
    J Cell Biol 147:683-93. 1999
    ..Secreton morphology did not change upon activation of secretion. In mutants of some genes encoding the secretion machinery the organelle was absent, whereas ipaB and ipaC mutants displayed normal secretons...

    A Blocker
    Unite de Pathogenie Microbienne Moleculaire, INSERM U389, Institut Pasteur, 25 28 Rue du Dr Roux, 75724 Paris Cedex 15, France
    Mol Microbiol 39:652-63. 2001
    ..As MxiH was present in NCs in large molar excess, we propose that it is the major needle component. MxiI may cap at the external needle tip...

    G Tran Van Nhieu
    Unite de Pathogenie Microbienne Moleculaire, INSERM U389, Institut Pasteur, Paris, France
    Cell Microbiol 2:187-93. 2000
    ..The Src tyrosine kinase activity, which is required for Shigella-induced actin polymerization, also appears to be involved in a negative regulatory loop that downregulates Rho at the site of entry...
