BACKGROUND GTP-loaded Ran induces the assembly of microtubules into aster-like and spindle-like structures in Xenopus egg extract. The microtubule-associated protein (MAP), TPX2, can mediate Ran's role in aster formation, but factors responsible for the transition from aster-like to spindle-like structures have not been described. RESULTS Here we identify a complex that is required for the conversion of aster-like to spindle-like structures. The complex consists of two characterized MAPs… CONTINUE READING
