AtMAP70-5 is the most divergent of a recently described multigene family of plant-specific microtubule-associated proteins (MAPs). It is significantly smaller than other members and has several isoform-specific sequence features. To confirm that this protein still functions as a MAP we show that it directly binds microtubules in vitro and decorates microtubules in vivo. When added to tubulin polymerization assays, AtMAP70-5 increases the length distribution profile of microtubules indicating… CONTINUE READING
