The Golgi apparatus is a highly dynamic organelle through which nascent proteins released from the endoplasmic reticulum (ER) are trafficked. Proteins are post-translationally modified within the Golgi and subsequently packaged into carriers for transport to a variety of cellular destinations. This transit of proteins, as well as the maintenance of Golgi(More)
In this study, we investigated how microtubule motors organize microtubules in Drosophila neurons. We showed that, during the initial stages of axon outgrowth, microtubules display mixed polarity and minus-end-out microtubules push the tip of the axon, consistent with kinesin-1 driving outgrowth by sliding antiparallel microtubules. At later stages, the(More)
