    T Toda
    Cell 37:233-42. 1984
    ..S. pombe tubulin was isolated by cycles of assembly and disassembly. Presumed alpha- and beta-tubulin polypeptide bands reacted with monoclonal antibodies specific for chicken alpha- and beta-tubulins...

    Y Hiraoka
    Cell 39:349-58. 1984
    ..6 kb Hind III genomic DNA that complemented the nda3 mutations had only one coding frame split with five short introns. The predicted amino acid sequence contained 448 residues, and was 75% homologous to that of chicken beta-tubulin...

    T Toda
    Cell 50:277-87. 1987
    ..The amino-terminal regions show no homology to each other and are heterogeneous in length. The TPK1 gene carried on a multicopy plasmid can suppress both a temperature-sensitive ras2 gene and adenylate cyclase gene...
