Abstract

Ciliary movement is powered by axonemal dynein. This article considers how a signal transduction cascade initiated at the cell membrane may activate outer dynein arms to change the velocity of microtubule sliding and the swimming speed of ciliated cells. For Paramecium, a critical event in the cascade is the cAMP-dependent phosphorylation of a 29 kDa polypeptide that is associated with the outer dynein arm.
