Research Grants & Projects

 
Efficient survey of anti-cancer drugs by a novel X-ray fiber diffraction technique to analyze dynamic configuration changes of tubulin molecules within native microtubules.
Project Year: 2014 - 2018
Tubulin fine structures in native microtubules revealed by X-ray fiber diffarction
Basic Science Research on Life Science
Project Year: 2012 - 2017
Microtubules (MT) are key components of the cytoskeleton in eukaryotic cells. One of the most undamental questions is how MT dynamics is associated with the molecular conformation of tubulin within MTs. To address the issues, we applied our new te...
Motility mechanisms and mechanical properties of eukaryote falagellum and its evolutional aspects.
Basic Science Research Program
Project Year: 1984   
We are now investigating the mechanisms of regulation, structural and mechanical properties of eukaryotic cilia and flagella, expecting such studies would lead us to understand the evolutionary history of eukaryotes. A major question is why all th...
Temperature dependent dynamics of cytoskeletal components in eukaryote cells.
Basic Science Research Program
Project Year: 2015 - 2018
Microtubules are key components of the cytoskeleton in eukaryotic cells. The dynamics between assembled microtubules and free tubulin dimers in the cytoplasm is closely related to the active shape changes of microtubule networks. One of the most u...
Structure analysis of axonemes and microtub ule under physiological conditions.
Basic Science Research on Life Science
Project Year: 2007   
Our novel technique to align biological fiber in a physiological buffer medium enabled us to start new investigation on the dynamic chnages of various biological fibers. We are now revealing new features of biologically important fiber structures.
