Abstract

Chlamydomonas flagella contain a molecular chaperone now identified as HSP70A, a major cytoplasmic isoform. HSP70A synthesis is upregulated by deflagellation, and its distribution in the flagellum overlaps with the IFT kinesin-II motor FLA10. HSP70A may chaperone flagellar proteins during transport, participating in the assembly and maintenance of the flagellum.
