Doublecortin Recognizes the Longitudinal Curvature of the Microtubule End and Lattice

BACKGROUND Microtubule ends have distinct biochemical and structural features from those of the lattice. Several proteins that control microtubule behavior can distinguish the end of a microtubule from the lattice. The end-binding protein EB1, for example, recognizes the nucleotide state of microtubule ends, which are enriched in GTP-tubulin. EB1 shares its… CONTINUE READING
