Table 1 γTub37C kinetic parameters in the spindle and cytoplasm

From: Anastral spindle assembly and γ-tubulin in Drosophila oocytes

Spindle or cytoplasm D(μm2/s) k*on (s-1) koff (s-1) t1/2 (s) Ceq
MI spindle 12 ± 5 0.02 ± 0.02 0.6 ± 0.3 1.1 0.03 ± 0.03
Ooplasm 8 ± 3 0.14 ± 0.03 0.9 ± 0.1 0.8 0.14 ± 0.03
Mitotic spindle 28 ± 10 0.015 ± 0.006 0.23 ± 0.04 3.0 0.06 ± 0.02
Embryo cytoplasm 26 ± 8 0.009 ± 0.004 0.15 ± 0.03 4.5 0.05 ± 0.02
  1. Kinetic parameters from fits to the FRAP data of the conical reaction-diffusion model [32]; the half-time of recovery was calculated by t1/2 = ln2/koff and the bound protein fraction at equilibrium by Ceq = k*on/(k*on+koff) [31].
